Nearly three quarters of businesses across the globe are using serviced apartments for workers on assignments and projects, according to a new influential report.

The latest Global Serviced Apartment Industry Report 2018/2019, compiled by the Travel Intelligence Network shows that the industry itself is going from strength to strength with the number of serviced apartments available increasing by 14 percent year-on-year.

Businesses looking for serviced apartments in Windsor for their staff will be interested to know that they offer a secure and safe option. This is increasingly relevant as employers are bound by certain duty of care obligations and are usually keen to house their staff in comfortable, central accommodation.

The report also found that nearly 70 percent of the serviced apartment operators questioned said they will be looking to grow the number of apartments they offer over the next two years. It’s easy to see why this might be the case in light of PricewaterhouseCooper’s recent Talent Mobility 2020 report, which states: “There will be more assignees, more business travel, more virtual tools, and especially more quick, short-term, and commuter assignments.”

Industry insiders believe that there are a number of factors behind the booming popularity of serviced apartments. Health and safety awareness is certainly a reason why more businesses are turning to this option, while they also offer a good value way to provide spacious accommodation for staff with great working facilities, such as desks and WiFi. These are now seen as ‘must haves’ for business travellers and many hotels still fail to offer these facilities.
