More than 8 in 10 women (83 percent) say they have experienced one or more safety-related concerns or incidents while traveling for business in the past year, according to new research from the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) in partnership with AIG Travel, a travel insurance company. Other key findings are: 90 percent say concern about safety has an effect on activities pursued during personal time while on business travel; 86 percent report an impact on booking behavior, such as booking only daytime flights or a central lodging location; 84 percent cite an impact on where they travel for business; 81 percent indicate their travel frequency for business has been impacted by safety concerns; and 80 percent say safety concerns have impacted their productivity on business trips. Rhonda Sloan, head of marketing and industry relations, AIG Travel, said the findings show that many female business travelers are aware of and concerned about the challenges they may face while traveling for work, while employers “still have plenty of room to provide more guidance and resources to help women minimize those risks and experience safer travels.”
