A couple of weeks ago, Hyatt launched what they’re calling “The World’s Largest Focus Group”. It was basically a series of Twitter chats with the goal of finding out what business travelers really think. While I wasn’t able to participate (darn job!) over 1,000 people responded to the chats with over 9,000 tweets, giving Hyatt plenty of insight. Here is an infographic (yay!) they put together with the results, and I have highlighted some of my favorites.
- More business than leisure travelers experience stress—I don’t think this will surprise anyone. The top three stressors are getting less sleep, missing family and friends, and having to navigate new things. I agree with those, and would add flight delays as one of my biggest stressors.
- Respondents said one thing that would make their trips less stressful is to be able to skip check in and go right to their room. I think that’s a great idea!! Is that possible?
- I think this statistic is very interesting, as well as indicative of the division of labor between spouses: 2/3 of men think a supportive partner is critical to successful business trips, while 2/3 women find planning ahead and organization are critical. Hmmmmm.
Readers, do you agree with the results? What is the biggest stressor for you while traveling?
