Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the difference in health- related behaviors while university recruiters are traveling and while they are at home. Analysis of a survey completed by 202 recruiters revealed that there is a significant difference for recruiters in health related behaviors when traveling as compared to when at home. These behaviors include driving behaviors, nutrition, safety, exercise, quality and hours of sleep hours, stress, and days the participants felt ill enough to miss work but did not take time off. Time on the road was not a significant factor because admissions recruiters change several behaviors when traveling regardless of time on the road, it is important for them to be educated about the potential consequences of their behaviors.
