Business travelers across the global, including those from India, are increasingly paying attention to their health while on business trips, says a research by CWT.
According to the survey, 54 per cent of business travelers from India work hard to adhere to their health and wellness routines, while 40 per cent try but find it challenging. The health and wellness amenities most commonly used by Indian business travelers include hotel gyms (58%), hotel swimming pools (48%) and in-room equipment such as yoga mats and stationary bikes (47%).
Half of the Indian respondents surveyed also indicated that they work out more while on the road, while only 6 per cent do not typically work out during business trips. And nearly three-quarters (72%) said they eat healthier when traveling for business – the highest number globally.
“Sticking to your regular routine on business trips can be challenging for various reasons, such as limited options or tight schedules,” said Vishal Sinha, CEO, India, CWT. “You’re focused on your work and trying to make the most of your trip, so you don’t have time to search for a gym or affordable healthy eating options if they’re not easily accessible. By creating travel policies that factor these things in, such as allowing travelers to stay at hotels with fitness facilities and ensuring their meal allowance is enough to cover healthy food choices, companies can create a much better travel experience for their employees.”
