Business Travel's Popularity Wanes

According to Sales & Marketing's Performance eNewsletter, business travel has slowed down over the past few years. Results from a recent study by Robert Half Management Resources show that almost half of those employees surveyed say that they are traveling less than they did five years ago. The study shows that companies that scaled back during recent difficult economic times, have not increased their travel allowances despite the improving economy.

Survey respondents were asked:

"Are you currently traveling for business more or less frequently than you were five years ago?"

* Much more frequently: 15 percent
* Somewhat more frequently: 21 percent
* Somewhat less frequently: 21 percent
* Much less frequently: 27 percent
* No change: 16 percent
