It is Terre des Hommes’ goal to keep staff expenses to a minimum. For all Terre des Hommes staff, including management, regulations apply for business travel expenses (where flying economy class is the standard), accommodation expenses (where they stay in simple to middle-class hotels) and commuter traffic. All members of management receive a monthly reimbursement of EUR 260.00 for commuter travel based on a scale applicable to all Terre des Hommes’ staff. In addition, all staff members receive a monthly expense reimbursement of EUR 100.00. Regular assessments are conducted to determine whether the reimbursement amount is in line with the expenses made. Occasionally, expenses are made which exceed the set amount of expense reimbursement. These expenses can be claimed if they are reasonable and sufficiently specified.
