LISTENING TO TRAVELERS

We continue to keep our survey open to monitor changing trends. If you have not taken our survey yet, and you travel for your job (whether just once a year, or 50 trips a year), we would love to hear from you!

  2. Nearly two thirds of employees will leave if travel is limited in the future.

  3. Employees struggle to do their jobs when virtual rather than in-person

  4. Travel is seen positively by employees, virtual meetings are not

  5. The majority of employees feel a reduction on ROI will negatively impact a companies ROI
