According to the SAP Concur Australia & New Zealand Business Travellers Report, 92% of Australian and New Zealand business travellers assert the future of their career depends on successful business travel in the coming year.

Yet travellers’ desire and need for flexibility and companies’ current policies concerning travel frequency, duration, and destinations are not always aligned. Travellers are understandably concerned for their own health and safety, including the ability to maintain an acceptable work-life balance, as well as voicing broader concerns around the environmental impacts of travel and the social and cultural circumstances in various destinations.

  • The vast majority of ANZ business travellers (92%) are willing to decline an assigned trip for reasons like health and safety, social, environmental or work-life balance concerns.

As companies seek to balance corporate belt-tightening with travellers' demands, it is imperative they recognise the experience of business travellers and find solutions that provide the flexibility travellers seek – but do so within the purview of corporate travel programs and budgets.

This market specific addendum data is part of the 2023 SAP Concur Global Business Travel Survey. In partnership with Wakefield Research, 3,850 business travellers across 25 global markets were surveyed, to gain insight into the current state of business travel and what the next year will bring.
