Only 52% of C-suite and senior executives say their organizations have traveler health and safety programs in place, according to research from CWT’s Energy, Resources and Marine (ERM) division. Only 32% say their organizations measure and report on the impact of traveler well-being, according to CWT ERM’s annual report, “2020 Vision: A Close Look at the Well-Being of Traveling Employees.”


This year’s ERM report is the first to focus primarily on the well-being of traveling employees and includes an independent global survey of nearly 400 C-suite executives and senior leaders in the oil and gas industry. Raphaël Pasdeloup, senior vice president and global head of CWT ERM, said the company wants to encourage organizational cultures that support the well-being of traveling employees while they’re on the job and after they’ve returned to their normal routines through monitoring and measured assessments. In addition to adopting new technologies to manage issues like fatigue, jet lag, exercise and nutrition, the report also offers recommendations on building an organizational culture that supports employee well-being, including getting buy-in from leaders making travel-related decisions and defining targeted interventions to support wellness while traveling.
