People suspect business travelers are up to no good, survey says
When you travel for business, you might work hard and live a clean life, but most people suspect you are drinking, cheating on your spouse and stuffing your face with fatty food.
That’s the conclusion of an online survey of more than 2,000 adults taken by Harris Interactive on behalf of On24 Inc., a San Francisco-based Web casting and virtual events company.
The survey found that 94% of those surveyed said “bad behaviors” take place among people who travel to business trade shows and conventions. The behavior, according to those who took the survey, included heavy drinking (77%), cheating on a spouse (66%), spending too much money (54%) and eating fatty foods (53%).
