Business Travel Management, are you kidding?
When economic recession hit the world two years back, it affected businesses very badly. In order to tide over this fiscal crisis, companies and organizations took some drastic measures such as layoffs, salary freeze, pay cuts, and so on. All measures were taken to cut down superfluous spending in all possible ways. Thus, business travel budgets were also reduced as it was seen as an unnecessary spending. Even when the economy recovered, the travel budgets weren't restored. Moreover, companies and organizations started preferring virtual meetings to face-to-face meetings as it was considered as a way of saving more time, effort, and money. Business travel budgets would be further reduced now with fears of another global recession in the offing. But is it a smart move to cut business travel budgets? Can virtual meetings take the scene of the face-to-face meetings? The answer is no.
