Hiring today has gotten ultra-competitive across growing industries, making it more and more important for companies to get creative in their talent search. Swanky offices, catered lunch and flexible work arrangements are a few of the carrots that might attract recruits, but perks are only part of the equation.

While talent can seem concentrated in competitive job markets, the truth is, the best and brightest can come from all over the world. That’s why NexTravel partnered with Greenhouse to enable companies to attract talent from anywhere.

Greenhouse exists to help companies with one of their biggest challenges: hiring. Our partnership will help make recruiting the best talent faster, more efficient and more diverse.

At NexTravel, we’ve experienced the power of recruiting beyond our bubble here in San Francisco firsthand. Today, we’re excited to be working with a company like Greenhouse that’s helping to redefine hiring.

Here’s what Dane Hurtubise, VP of Partnerships and Platform for Greenhouse had to say:

The Greenhouse and NexTravel integration allows our innovative mutual clients to easily arrange candidate travel for interviews, streamlining the hiring process. In the highly competitive world of recruiting, lowering the time to hire is an important objective for talent teams. This integration takes the complexity out of candidate travel expenses and logistics.”

Hiring managers and recruiters will be now able to fly candidates out to their offices for interviews, with a seamless travel booking experience that lets candidates choose their preferred itinerary while avoiding fronting costs or dealing with expenses after the fact.

Wen Wen Lam, Nextravel’s CEO explained, “With this partnership, we’ll be able to take the strengths of both offerings and combine them to make an overall smoother hiring experience for the fastest growing companies in the world.”

Greenhouse clients can now automatically synchronize candidate information into the NexTravel Hire platform, providing users with a seamless candidate hiring experience.  By connecting HR, accounting and travel management, companies can reduce errors, save on travel costs, and enable recruiters to spend more time actually recruiting, rather than dealing with logistics.

Open Booking has traditionally been a controversial topic among the managed travel community. Open Booking is the process of booking travel outside the approved channels set forth by the company, and frankly, many travelers are guilty of this. In an effort to collaborate with that natural tendency to occasionally book outside of their travel program, NexTravel has launched an Open Booking functionality.

The Open Booking feature allows travelers to import reservations that were booked outside of NexTravel into the NexTravel platform. This enables the traveler to keep all of their trips and receipts centralized, despite different booking channels.

At NexTravel, we’re always striving to provide business travelers with more choices and costs savings for their flights. Our newest flight results feature, Mixed Fares, pairs one-way flights from different airlines to build cheaper and more flexible round-trips.

So, how does it work?

Let’s say you’re taking a business trip from San Diego to New York City. Our search results will now display a combination of regular fares and Mixed Fares, providing cheaper and more flexible options for the trip. Simply choose which regular or Mixed Fare result is the most ideal for your business trip and choose “Select”.

On January 27, 2017, President Trump signed an executive order suspending entry of citizens from seven countries – Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – to the United States for at least the next 90 days. Since then, a federal judge has issued an emergency stay temporarily halting the removal of detained individuals. Regardless, we recommend that individuals from these designated countries do not travel until the travel ban has been lifted.

You and/or your employees may be affected by these changes, either with employees stranded away from home or unable to enter the country.

Please contact us directly for any travel plan changes and we will work towards helping those affected as much as possible. In addition, our partners at Airbnb are offering free housing to anyone affected by this event – please contact us or go directly to Airbnb.com.

We’re really excited to announce that we now work with companies internationally.   After hearing hundreds of companies ask about working with their offices across the world, we’ve recently partnered with WTravel to provide best in class service globally.  What exactly does this mean?

Over the next few months, we’ll be working toward initiatives that provide a truly global experience for our customers. Rather than having customers set up each of their offices for travel individually, we allow our customers to do so with a one time global implementation.

  • Same easy to use platform, but for offices everywhere.  We’ll be working on rolling out localization across our platform to service companies with a global presence.
  • Better pricing for local customers.  We’re working on adapting best practices in 33 major markets so that our customers can take advantage of localized pricing through air fare carriers.
  • Best in class customer service no matter where your offices are.  Our partnership with WTravel allows customers access to best-in-class customer service, with 9-5 coverage in their local time zone.

As a team, we’re really excited to be doing things differently and bringing a new, better travel experience to our customers.  Over the the past year and a half we saw so many things that we thought we could improve, and this is a huge first step for making business travel simple- globally.
