´╗┐business travel changes

The failure of major financial institutions last month followed by weeks long chaos on Wall Street has caused many companies to re evaluate their solvency and spending, particularly in a line item that few employees want to sacrifice: travel.

While cutting back on business travel has been a concern this year given the rising cost of airfare, the recent turmoil has provided an "Buy Cheap Jintropin Online" added urgency, according to experts in the business travel industry. To address the issue, travel managers are considering everything from curtailing trips that aren't revenue generated to renegotiating contracts with hotels to include free Internet or gym access to asking employees of the same sex to share hotel rooms.

"There's a lot of shock, a lot of gallows humor," says Susan Gurley, executive director of the Association of Corporate Travel Executives, a nonprofit association based in Alexandria, Va. While at an ACTE sponsored conference in Rome last week, Gurley overheard executives debating different cost cutting strategies.

"People are trying to figure out what trips are critical," "Anabola Steroider Norge Lagligt" she says. One third said they expected to spend less on travel.

Shrinking budgets have already had an impact on airlines and hotels. First and business class air traffic declined by 1 percent from July 2007 to July 2008, according to the International Air Transport Association. That's following an average growth "Oxandrolone Powder India" of 1.5 percent during the first half of the year.

Drops on some routes have been even more dramatic: Premium air travel between Africa and the Far East was down 4.2 percent after a 9.7 percent rise "Achat Anabolisant Belgique" in June. Preliminary numbers from Smith Travel Research show that hotel occupancy in September was down by 5 7 percent from last September.

Even when companies send employees on the road, they scrutinize every expense.

"Do they pick up a sandwich for lunch or stop in an expensive restaurant in every airport and have a sushi lunch?" Schnur says. "On an individual basis that's a $20 or $30 difference, but across 20,000 travelers it can have a million dollar difference."

Some of ACTE's members, according to Gurley, have been floating the idea of asking employees to eat before arriving at the airport when possible. Other cost cutting measures include traveling in coach on international flights, downgrading from Town Cars to taxis, or 4-chlorodehydromethyltestosterone sharing hotel rooms with same sex co workers. Since the business climate now favors the buyer instead of the supplier, many companies are renegotiating their travel contracts to include free Internet or access to the gym. It will no longer be enough to return from a trip only having wined and dined a client. Now, many companies will expect a "return on [the] investment", says Gurley. Ultimately, this puts pressure on employees to generate even more revenue from travel than they might have before.

Companies are getting more serious about substituting Web and video conferencing for travel when possible. Employees should expect to learn more about these technologies and even pro actively suggest them as possibilities.

But executives can't Proviron Deca Cycle place such demands on staff especially during a time when they likely feel increased pressure at home as well without bearing some of the burden.

"It's critical that leadership set a good example and that they hold themselves accountable to the same standards that they hold their travelers to," says Schnur.

To prevent morale from sinking, Schnur recommends that senior leaders connect travel related savings to the overall financial health of the company. A $5 million dollar savings, for example, can be invested in research and development.
