DXC Technology warns techies that all travel MUST now be authorised


Travel requests

Typical travel discussion at DXC

Boss: I need to you to travel to customer site next week for an urgent meeting.

Me: OK, but can you approve my travel?

Boss: No, you need to submit a request for travel and justify your costs.

Me: But you want me to go, personally I don't want to travel

Boss: You have to follow the process or you need to explain to the customer why you can't make it.

Me: Ok - I have submitted the travel request, but it was rejected by your boss.

Boss: You need to contact them and explain why you need to travel

Repeat process for the next week until the customer makes a big fuss and eventually management relent and approves travel at the last minute forcing the company to pay more for the travel as only expensive tickets are available.
