Lost in a vacuum: Time to revive extended business travel
If you agree that travelling for business is something to get excited about you are not alone: 40% of younger employees (Millennials and Gen Z in particular) wouldn’t accept a job that doesn’t include travel and 30% of workers would even consider lower salaries in exchange for more business trips.
Long term business travellers have the perk of getting to know the ins and outs of another city, a higher salary (potentially) and the freedom to build a new nest – a home away from home. Sadly, business travel, especially long-term, is not as dreamy as it is perceived to be. Outdated technology (or no technology at all) linking business travellers to real-estate has resulted in obstacles from start to finish; both for the corporations making extended travel bookings and the business travellers themselves.
