When first planning a trip, most corporate travelers know what they need to accomplish while they are at their destination. Many, however, do not think of the broad range of needs that might arise during their time away from their office. Sylwia Majtczak, a corporate travel consultant at Altour, takes pride in considering every aspect of a trip to ensure overall success. Every corporate traveler has different needs, and as a result each trip needs to be tailored to the specific activities expected.
A common need for corporate travelers is space to work where they will not be interrupted. While many travelers use their hotel room for private work space, this is not always ideal. As well, the availability of work space will often depend on the type of business trip. If you are traveling to another office to work with local employees most companies will have space you can use to work in.
However, if you are traveling for formal training or certification it is common for the training space to be rented and unavailable outside of training time. It is important to consider the availability of work space and find other alternatives if the office you are traveling to does not have space set aside for visitors to work.
Finding sufficient space to work is only one of many potential challenges in planning a business trip.
Sylwia Majtczak has worked with corporate travelers for almost 20 years and knows each trip has unique challenges that need to be addressed.
