People looking for work would accept a low-paying job offer if it allows them to travel according to business travel site Booking.com for Business, the global leader in connecting business travelers with the widest choice of places to stay. About 30 percent of the respondents in their study would jump in an opportunity since most biz companies do not appreciate travel as a reward or motivational method for employee productivity.
While there may be jobs catering to the tourism industry, no matter how odd they may be, people would just want to have business-leisure trips now and then to add a little playfulness in their work. Booking.com for Business Director of Product Development Ripsy Bandourian said, "No longer seen as lost time or a career inconvenience, business travel is increasingly seen as an opportunity to expand horizons, find inspiration and progress in a career."
He further added that the typical millennial employee is seen to be the one wanting to add business and leisure mixed up, or in short, bleisure. "As such, they expect employers to keep pace with their need for greater fluidity and flexibility and are even prepared to negotiate on salary to do so. It's why Booking.com for Business is focused on providing a diverse range of accommodation choices for business travelers as well as ensuring they can find, manage and enjoy company stays in the simplest, smartest and most rewarding way," Bandourian said.
Among the surveyed people, 55 percent will take work for travel, 49 percent have extended their business trip to lounge in for a while, with one-fourth of the total study want to continue what they did for this year's business travel. Booking.com for Business expected about half of the respondents to move more in their work and see the rise in the trend against 2016.
Also, according to the site, European countries like London, Paris, and Frankfurt are the top choices for biz travelers. Asian countries are seen to dominate it in 2017.
