How to Motivate Responsible Employee Spending
Thursday, October 20

The Intercontinental San Francisco
Employee-generated expenses have a significant effect on an organization's budget, but CFOs and controllers lack effective tools for influencing individuals' spending decisions. Nowhere is this more true than with regard to business travel, which accounts for the vast majority of reimbursable expenses. Business travelers are not price-sensitive: when spending company money on flights and hotels, they prioritize comfort and convenience over cost. The employee and employer's interests are misaligned; the result is wasteful spending.
This session will explore concrete strategies for achieving responsible spending. By incorporating insights from behavioral economics and utilizing smart incentive structures, companies can reduce expenses and motivate employees to be cost-conscious.
