Numerous trips, long hours and going back and forth between different time zones can really take its toll on employees. Many employees find themselves working later, or even taking work home both the week before and the few days after their trips in order to complete tasks or catch up on the working time they missed during the trip.
Burnout can result in lower confidence levels, a drop in productivity and even job satisfaction which means it’s more important than ever to ensure you aren’t overstressing or overworking staff before, during and after business trips.
