A staggering 43 percent of Thai business travelers would accept a lower paying job if it meant they could travel more for work, according to a recent study by Booking.com.
The 2017 Travel Predictions collected data from 12,781 respondents across 13 markets in September 2016, and the number of Thais willing to accept a lower paying job for opportunities to travel to exciting destinations is 13 percent higher than the global average (30 percent.)
The research also shows that company bosses are potentially under-valuing business travel as a staff remuneration “bargaining chip” as well as a workforce motivation and retention tool.
These findings reflect a broader trend that employees are increasingly smudging the line between business and leisure. Data shows that nearly three quarters of Thai business travelers (71 percent) have extended a business trip to a different city or country in the past 12 months, the highest of all countries researched. Additionally, 37 percent claim they intend to do the same in 2017.
