30% of people would accept a lower paying job if it meant traveling more for work, reveals Booking.com for Business
Businesses must brace themselves for a new breed of business travellers that favour new experiences over traditional workplace benefits
LONDON – 25th January– New research reveals that a staggering 30% of business travellers would accept a lower paying job if it meant they could travel more for work.[i] Commissioned by Booking.com for Business, the global leader in connecting business travellers with the widest choice of places to stay, the research shows that company bosses are potentially under-valuing business travel as a staff remuneration ‘bargaining chip’ as well as a workforce motivation and retention tool.
These findings reflect a broader trend identified by Booking.com for Business which reveals that employees are increasingly smudging the line between business and leisure. Data shows that nearly half of business travellers (49%) have extended their business trip to a different city or country in the past 12 months, with nearly one third of this group (27%) claiming they intend to do the same in 2017. It’s a trend Booking.com for Business predicts will continue in the coming year with 46% of those surveyed believing they will travel more for business in 2017 than they did in 2016.
Booking.com B.V., part of the Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), owns and operates Booking.com™, the world leader in booking accommodations online. Each day, over 1,200,000 room nights are reserved on Booking.com. The Booking.com website and apps attract visitors from both the leisure and business sectors worldwide.
