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.
