The Pleo Digest – May 2021

Serious savings on eco-friendly travel? As a Pleo Perk?

You got it.

Whether you’ve got business travel planned before or after your summer holidays, our latest Perk has you covered.  

Let’s dive right into this month’s news. 

Pleo Perks: Goodwings

We have great news – Goodwings has joined our Pleo Perks programme!  

Sustainable travel is a lot easier with Goodwings. This Copenhagen-based hotel booking site removes emissions from your travels by calculating the total carbon footprint from your whole trip. Once calculated, they invest in verified reforestation projects so you’re travelling completely Net Zero.

Show me the Perk! Goodwings are offering Pleo users a 20% discount on all paid plans for the first year. And if you sign up before July 1st, you’ll get the rest of 2021 for free and a 20% discount for all of 2022. 

We spoke to Christian Møller-Holst, Goodwings’ CEO and founder, to learn more about how business travel has changed. 

“I believe the future of travel is green. Most people want to travel in a way that isn’t accelerating climate change at such a rapid pace — and we want to enable that change.” - Christian Møller-Holst

Women and the pandemic

This past year has been challenging. While there’s an end in sight, the pandemic has caused lasting damage – especially for women’s workplace gains.

From hospitality and retail getting hit hard by lockdowns to unpaid caregiving labour. We are currently in the midst of a ‘shecession’ — an economic crisis where job and income losses are affecting women more than men. 

How can businesses return to normality with diversity in mind

We're the proud sponsors of the She can. She did. Podcast, powered by can.did, which shares the nitty-gritty details about what it means to be a female business owner today.

Product Spotlight: Admin Subscriptions Overview 

Back in March, we shared the exciting news about our Subscription Overview, which pulls together all of your teams’ recurring payments in one place.

Maybe you haven’t set it up yet? 🙈

Not to worry, we’re going to take you through how it works:

It’s actually pretty simple...

Pleo automatically centralises all the relevant payments under the Subscriptions tab.

Pleo Resources: Expense Policy Builder

An expense policy, if done right, can be one of the most important documents in any business. But it can feel daunting to start one from scratch, or to give your existing one an upgrade. Especially if you’ve got plenty on your plate already.

So, we’ve created an Expense Policy Builder that’ll help you quickly draw up spending guidelines that are tailored to your business.

And for more advice on how to sculpt the perfect expense policy, head over to our blog
