Top execs tend to ignore company travel policy

A survey on business travelers by PhoCusWright shows that about two-thirds of company workers in the management and executive levels flout travel policies in their booking activities. "Lower-level employees are more likely to comply with policy than upper management and executives, who kind of do their own thing," said Carroll Rheem, director of research at PhoCusWright. Reasons for deviation include convenience, loyalty points and better pricing.

And many people think this problem is just limited to our elected/appointed officials!
