Research released today by travel management platform CWT reveals that six in ten travellers feel more creative and productive during business trips.

According to a survey, millennials are more likely to say business travel sparks their creativity and productivity – especially those in the Americas (77 per cent). They’re followed closely by those in Asia Pacific (75 per cent feeling more creative and 73 per cent more productive). European millennials rank third at 58 per cent and 57 per cent, respectively.

Overall, those in Asia Pacific were most likely to report a boost to creativity (65 per cent) and productivity (64 per cent) compared to those in the Americas and Europe.

The research also found six in ten travellers feel the most productive when working face-to-face with colleagues as opposed to working alone (33 per cent) or remotely (14 per cent).

Niklas Andreen, executive VP and chief traveller experience officer at CWT, said: “We are proud to be in a business that helps bring out the best in people. These findings are not a surprise – travel energises people, fosters fresh thinking, creates connections – and nothing beats a face-to-face meeting.”
