But employees believe face-to-face still most effective approach

CANADIAN WORKERS aren’t logging the same number of miles they used to, according to a recent survey.

Employees took an average of 8.95 business trips in the last year compared to 13.36 the previous year, according to a survey by the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Foundation and American Express.

But is that a reflection of a stalled economy, advances in technology or employee preferences? It could be a mixture of all three but, either way, travellers still say meeting face-to-face has the greatest impact.
