Millennial Travelers Feel More Productive, Creative on Road
About 60 percent of millennial travelers are more likely to say they are more creative and productive when traveling for business, according to CWT, the travel management platform. Those in the Americas lead the way (77 percent feeling more creative and productive), followed closely by those in Asia-Pacific (75 percent feeling more creative and 73 percent more productive). European millennials rank third (58 percent and 57 percent respectively). Niklas Andreen, executive vice president and chief traveler experience officer at CWT, said the findings are not a surprise as travel energizes people, fosters fresh thinking, creates connections – “and nothing beats a face-to-face meeting.” CWT’s research also shows that six in 10 travelers are most productive when working face-to-face and collaborating with colleagues as opposed to working alone (30 percent) or remotely (14 percent). Asia Pacific travelers’ productivity benefits the most from working face-to-face: 61 percent versus 53 percent for travelers from the Americas and Europe.
