Travel buyers' average compensation has risen 5 percent since summer 2014, to $110,000, and their satisfaction with salary and benefits lifted with the tide. Median income rose 6 percent to $103,000.
The findings come from the Global Business Travel Association, which surveyed 285 U.S. buyers between June 24 and July 16, and appeared in its 2015 Compensation and Benefits study, revealed today. The research asked buyers to compare their 2015 salaries to their 2014 earnings.
BTN's 2015 Travel Manager Salary & Attitude Survey, released in July, also recorded a 5 percent year-over-year compensation increase, to an average of $114,769.
