New study reveals top business locations for productivity
Thursday, August 30, 2012
A new study by Cambia Suits revealed the top cities in the U.S. For "work-life productivity." In a recent press release, work-life productivity was defined as allowing for living "more productively by focusing equally on personal and professional needs."
Business travelers were asked to fill out a questionnaire in which they rated several cities' work-life productivity rates. The respondents were individuals who had already spent a significant amount of time lodging in hotels or corporate housing.
Respondents rated San Diego as the top location for work-life productivity, rating it as 74 percent productive. Seattle came in second place as 69 percent, while Boston and Chicago tied for third at 68 percent. Orlando and San Francisco rounded out the top five, coming in at 67 percent and 66 percent, respectively.
Interestingly, responses differed by factors such as age and gender. Travelers over the age of 35 were more likely to give Orlando a high productivity rating (70 percent) while younger business professionals rated it more poorly (56 percent). Interestingly, gender also played a large role in the rankings - women were more likely than men to find Chicago, Dallas, San Antonio, San Francisco and Phoenix productive.
