Well, recent research has shown that face to face has invaluable benefits!
Virtual meetings became a necessity during the pandemic, and many have continued since – but we all know how easy it is to be distracted in those online meetings or conferences, where the opportunity to multitask can lead to distraction.
Data from an article on Zippia.com indicated that “employees multitask in at least 41% of meetings” and the most common multitasking behaviours in virtual meetings were checking e-mails (55%) texting (51%) snacking (45%) and social media (39%).*
The BTA commissioned the Confederation of British Industry’s (CBI) Economics team to prepare a report, issued this week, to understand the benefits of business travel and in person meetings.
It showed that over three quarters of those businesses interviewed found face to face meetings beneficial. Afterall we all find it easier to pick up the tone of our meetings when we can see each other in person. The report is available on The BTA website now!
So, if you do need to travel, and there are clearly good reasons to attend those conferences in person, then let us sort out your travel.
