Business travel’s new era of wellbeing and sustainability
If an organization truly tunes into its environment, what benefits does this bring? This time, Rewilding Work with Paul Miller looks at the art and science of listening to employees. It also flips the switch and focuses on business travel post pandemic and how an era of more purposeful travel is emerging.
DWG’s Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Paul Miller, is joined by Kelly Flynn, Vice President, Strategic Communications at BCD Travel. BCD is a major player in the world’s corporate travel market, which sets out to help companies to travel smart and achieve more.
Together, Kelly and Paul discuss the value of corporate listening, the courage this requires, and the recognition for employees that their voice matters along with their wellbeing. The duo also consider the realities of post-pandemic travel and look at what current trends may mean for sustainability and work.
“There is this sense that we need to listen to what our environment is telling us, if we have the courage to listen. And I think if you consider the workplace as sort of that kind of an equivalent biosphere where everything needs to be functioning in harmony, then there are benefits.”

Reflecting on what particularly resonates from the conversation, expert commentators Jila Bahri-Esfahani, Head of Business Consulting at BJSS, and Ephraim Freed, Customer Growth Manager, Reality Labs at Meta, add their views.
Rewilding Work gives focus to the idea that, if we change the world of work, we can change the wider world. Watch today – as the discussion highlights, it’s possible there’s even more value in being interested than interesting.
