Business Travel Tips

Travel smarter and smoother

Travelling for business can be a bit of a chore to say the least. If you enjoy meeting new people and seeing new places, it can seem exciting for a while, but soon living out of a case ceases to be attractive.

Preparation is always the key to making the trip more comfortable and enjoyable, so here are some business travel tips and hacks that will really make a difference to how your business travel feels.

Flexible Working

Has 9 to 5 had it’s day?

Flexibility can benefit everyone, if you do it right. In a flexible working arrangement, an employee has some say over how, where or when they work. Whether this involves working from home, working part-time, job sharing or having another kind of flexitime arrangement. With such a wide range of technologies, new working methods and communication solutions available to employers today, there is no reason why flexible working can’t be a universally advantageous endeavour. In a Forbes study, remote workers were happier, felt more valued and felt more productive. But it also highlighted the importance of management communication, goals setting and focus to avoid any pitfalls.

The Covid-19 pandemic has seen businesses adopt flexible working practices, like remote working, at an unprecedented rate. Will this culture change continue to be embraced after the pandemic?

Personality Types

Be the type of person you want to meet

Taking a personality test can be both fun and revealing. But how reliable are they and do they ever tell us anything we don’t already know? Being curious to understand ourselves better is part of human nature but can knowing more about our personality type really help us make better decisions or build stronger relationships? Personality assessments are also commonly used in the workplace, as part of an interview process or career development. But some complain of being sidelined, or even sacked, when the test doesn’t give the answer the employer is looking for. In this Pod, we explore how personality tests work, why we love them so much and how to use them wisely.
