UK – USA Business Travel
- Richard Moss
Even pre-pandemic the acronym ‘WFH’ (work from home) was on the rise. However, the pandemic with its countless lockdowns certainly accelerated the need to work from home. Millions of office workers who hadn’t already embraced a little WFH in their contracts were suddenly thrown into an entirely remote and digital world of working. Post pandemic, much of the world has acclimatised to the benefits of a part-time if not full-time WFH model.
So how does WFH translate into business travel? Well, for one the acronym is still the same, but it translates as ‘Work From Hotel’.
More and more hotels are converting their guest rooms and suites into work-friendly environments. Whether that be with improved, practical workspaces or free high speed Wifi to all rooms rather than just the lobby. Many hotels are also investing in new business centres and more comfortable meeting rooms. Business centres offer additional working space outside of guest rooms as well as facilities such as printing, scanning and faxing.

These travellers are looking for the perfect blend in leisure and business facilities in a hotel. As well as the optimal work environment, this business traveller seeks perks for personal wellness and balance.
