How stressful is business travel? Very. Especially if you’re a female vice president. We know this because Michael Segalla and Dominique Rouziès of HEC Paris teamed up with Catalin Ciobanu and Vincent Lebunetel of Carlson Wagonlit Travel to survey thousands of business travelers about the stress they felt at every stage of a trip.When mapped on the timeline of a standard business trip, the data offer a view into who’s stressed out by what.
