Detroit has been named the best city for business travel according to the Business Travel Productivity Report from On Call International.
Twenty different cities were considered in the report and were rated based on a variety of factors such as average hotel prices, the rate of flights being on time, traffic, and even the availability of emergency room treatment. Basically, anything that might slow down a business traveler from getting their work done.
Thomas Davidson, the Vice President of On Call International released a statement about the findings.
“There are several issues that could arise during business travel that have the potential to affect employee safety and productivity— and also impact their organization’s bottom line.
“Clients, customers, and partners may not be sympathetic when it comes to missed meetings or late deliverables in today’s always-on digital work environments, and staying connected while avoiding major obstacles like flight delays and gridlock traffic is paramount to a road warrior’s productivity and success.
“We encourage employers to implement a comprehensive travel risk management program in order to mitigate the unique risks, both large and small, presented by any city.”
