In a recent survey conducted by Aviva it was found that 36% of employees wished to return home because they were missing their previous lifestyle. Therefore, it is often a key priority for companies these days to ensure that their employees maintain a well-balanced lifestyle when travelling abroad.
Whilst many business travelers continue to use hotels, there is no denying the negative impact this can have on their lifestyle and health, especially for long stays. Hotel rooms are often cramped and fail to provide the facilities for guests to prepare food from scratch. There is also the issue of not being able to wash and dry your clothes in your own room.
However, there is an alternative which can help business travelers maintain a healthy lifestyle; serviced apartments. Serviced apartments promote employee wellbeing by providing a fully functional kitchen where food can be prepared from scratch. There is also the added convenience of being able to wash and dry your clothes as and when you want.
Most importantly, serviced apartments provide up to 3 times more space than a standard hotel room. This added space can give guests the feeling that they are in a home away from home and thus help to provide a relaxing environment.
There also the cost benefits of staying in a serviced apartment compared to a hotel. As mentioned in previous blog articles, serviced apartments work out significantly cheaper than hotels for stays of 10 nights+. So all in all serviced apartments provide a more attractive proposition for accommodating employees than hotels.
In recognising the importance of employee well-being, Clarendon Serviced Apartments offers a grocery shop service for guests added convenience and a guide of activities to do in each location. Gym and pool facilities are also provided in select locations in Canary Wharf.
So while the priority remains to ensure employee wellbeing when travelling abroad, serviced apartments should be the number one choice for accommodation.
