The results from the June survey illuminate the fact that changes in workforce realities meshed with a faster-than-expected return to travel are transforming managed business travel.

According to the research, 54 percent of those surveyed say business travel has rebounded faster than expected, while 77 percent report they are spending more time troubleshooting traveler issues.
