Business executives are travelling more and more, with a predicted 7% increase year upon year for the next five years. Simultaneously, companies are expecting their business executives to incorporate work with travel to meet tight deadlines. This is more prevalent as transport links improve along with mobile technologies.
More so now, employees are obliged to ensure they are not only fit for work but can remain healthy during and post business travel so as to achieve an optimum level of performance and reduce the risk of post-travel absenteeism (or even the suspicion of ‘presenteeism’).
Unfortunately, over half of those travelling on short-term and/or long-haul trips will experience health impairments. As business travel is becoming more frequent, studies from the insurance claim data at the World Bank are beginning to show an increase in ill health with the increased frequency of travel. The incidence of poor physical and mental health has increased by up to 80% for the more frequent traveller.
But not all is bad news! With adequate information and preparation, it is possible to achieve a healthy effect from business travel. Our travel well being and health consultants are here to let you know how! We will assist you in pre-travel preparation as well as guiding you to make informed choices en route, ranging from simple tips to detailed itinerary support.
Healthy Business Travel Guides
Going prepared and knowing in advance what is available to eat, where to relax or even to gently work out when you’re travelling is an excellent way of remaining mentally alert, staying healthy and beating the bulge. If you need to reach your business meeting or destination at your peak, then these helpful guides will assist you during your travel.
Our Travel Health Experts have personally visited UK airport to check out the terminal and surrounding hotels for the best places to work, relax and nap while maintaining your mental and physical wellbeing when en route. Our Registered Nutritionists and Dietitians have also checked out the healthier options for meals and snacks. Our guides are available either as an e-book or hard copy. You can order our guides here
Taking your own food overseas can pay dividends, especially if you have favourite foods, you need to be careful about what you eat, or require a special diet that travel providers may not be able to supply en route. So if you are not sure what foods you can pack to eat when travelling abroad then try our regulatory advice to make travelling with food easier.
Travelling by Eurostar and beyond
Travelling by train to France, Belgium or beyond is an excellent way to get to your business appointments in Europe. But the last thing you want to do is to arrive at your final destination feeling rather wilted and drained from the journey.
Our consultant Travel Health Specialists have the first-hand experience of how to get to your chosen destination feeling fresh and alert, comfortable and ready to conduct business with maximum possible success. We have tried and tested facilities available to you in the accommodating international railway stations, along with searching where to find the best food and drink buys which can be purchased en route.
