UK workers challenged to manage increased meetings and business travel

Just under half of respondents feel more pressure to be constantly available, especially when commuting or traveling for business

Mar 21, 2024

More than a third of UK office workers report an increase in in-person meetings, which for many is leading to more business travel and a more difficult work-life balance, according to a survey commissioned by chauffeured ride-hailing platform provider Blacklane of more than 2,000 office-based professionals.

Key takeaways

  • Among total respondents, 35% said their frequency of work-related travel has steadily increased over the past two years, and about two-thirds said they have travelled as many as 50 times for business over the previous 12 months;
  • According to the survey, more than half (52%) of respondents who have experienced a rise in the number of in-person meetings are struggling to cope with the increased demand;
  • Fifty-three per cent of respondents said they have seen remote meetings increase over that period as well, according to the survey.
