Two in five workers in the US and a third globally said in a poll that the lack of business travel in 2020 “demotivated” them. The survey, conducted for IHG Hotels & Resorts, also showed that 40% of those who travel for business said they miss face-to-face meetings; more than half of respondents said business travel allows them to “create meaningful relationships with colleagues, customers and/or clients”; and nearly 45% said business travel improves their working mood and makes them more motivated. The survey was based on responses from 6,000 consumers in the US, UK and Australia. When it comes to what respondents traveling for work miss the most, one in three said it was “sleeping in a comfy hotel bed,” and one in four said “room service.” Claire Bennett, chief customer officer for IHG, said, “The world has changed, and travel decisions must be made more thoughtfully.”
