 Risk & Insurance

Have you seen the new advertisement on television for a hotel chain that shows a happy business traveler literally getting a leg up on the competition by swinging his leg onto a competitor’s shoulder? The advertisement takes the simplistic view that road warriors are happier and more productive when using smart apps for booking and staying at that hotel chain. However, research and industry literature paint a not-so-rosy picture of business travel, mainly due to travel-induced health problems that could eventually lead to workers’ compensation claims.
