There is a beautiful misconception around corporate travel...construed by images of relaxed travelers sipping extraordinary wines in Business and First, or soaking in the spa bath of their plush hotel room.
Yet these images fail to capture the stress often caused by delayed flights, limited wi-fi or substandard rooms. How can this stress be managed to maintain traveler productivity?
Traveling smarter to reduce stress
As every corporate journey is affected by elements outside the traveler’s control, it is impossible to eliminate stress. Companies can however, reduce the negative impacts on productivity by helping to make work trips more comfortable. Corporate Traveler believes the solution is to focus on traveler needs and comfort as much as cost-saving policies. Employees don’t necessarily need to travel less – they can often travel smarter.
