Cambria Suites Research Finds Productivity Is Key To Achieving Work-Life Balance For Business Travelers

"At Cambria Suites hotels, we check off the top must-haves from a business traveler's wish list without busting their expense budget," says Murphy. "Today's business traveler is really looking for great value in a hotel and Cambria Suites provides that." The all-suites hotel chain offers spacious suites that are larger than average hotel rooms with separate sleeping and living areas; free high-speed Internet and remote printing throughout the hotel so that guests can stay connected on the road.

More Women Than Men Use Technology to Stay In Touch with Loved Ones

The survey found women value and use technology more than men to stay connected with their personal lives on business trips. Women are more likely (plus 13 percent points) than men to say that social media in particular has enhanced their business travel experience by keeping them in touch with their personal and professional networks (42 percent compared with 29 percent). Eight of 10 female business travelers state that technology is just as important in their business and personal life to enhance their overall productivity, compared to seven of 10 men. The survey also revealed that achieving work-life balance is more important to female road warriors, with 96 percent of women saying work-life balance is an important goal compared with 82 percent of men.

Survey respondents were full-time employees and had taken at least four business trips with a minimum distance of 50 miles in the last 12 months. More than eight out of 10 respondents (83 percent) said that it was not only important to increase their work productivity, but to live their entire life more productively.

All Cambria Suites hotels feature Reflect, a casual dining and gathering area serving a dinner menu, liquor, wine, beer, freshly prepared grab-and-go gourmet salads and sandwiches, a barista bar featuring Wolfgang Puck® coffee and a hot breakfast buffet; Refresh, a state-of-the-art fitness center with an elegant pool and hot tub/spa area; and Refill, a 24-7 convenience store that offers energy drinks, snacks and sundries.

Methodology

*Cambria Suites commissioned the GBTA Foundation to field an online survey of frequent business travelers between Aug. 1-11, 2012. The GBTA Foundation provided recommendations and edits to the questionnaire drafted by Cambria Suites. The GBTA Foundation programmed and fielded the study to a representative online sample of 407 frequent business travelers utilizing the population samples provided by ResearchNow. All analysis conducted with the data was performed by Cambria Suites. To participate in the study, respondents had to be at least 18 years old, be employed full-time and have taken at least four business trips in the last 12 months that required travel of at least 50 miles. All surveys have a margin of error due to the random nature of sampling. The margin of sampling error for aggregate results is +/-4.9 percentage points.
