Why company policies are important when you manage employee expenses

Explore the significance of company policies in managing employee expenses effectively. Enforcing policies ensures cost savings, simplifies employee routines, and enhances transparency.
Company policies in organizations


In a globalized world, business travels and employee expenses are increasingly influencing companies’ everyday activities. The many transactions can be difficult to keep on track, and employees might create excessive consumptions, if their expenses are not supervised and company policies are not enforced.

A survey made by Egencia, the corporate travel brand of the Expedia group, shows that approx. 50% of the employees who participated in the survey, spend much more than what company policies allow, when they for example book their business trips.

By defining, controlling and enforcing your company’s policies, you first and foremost increase the bottom line value. In addition to the financial benefits, you will make everyday life of your employees less complicated by ensuring that they do not lose track of what is right or wrong. Effective and verifiable company policies are therefore of great importance to your company as:

  • You achieve far greater savings on the bottom line
  • They help you avoid financial fraud and / or overuse
  • They provide a better overview and transparency as employees are proactively warned if they violate company policies
