Keep your staff busy—and comfy— on the road
If you and your team travel often on business, it may pay to check into a corporate apartment rather than a hotel room. It’s easier to stay productive when you’re living in a fully equipped home away from home. The cost varies, but it’s often surprisingly reasonable, given the benefits: a furnished apartment with a kitchen, washer and dryer and a homey feel. See BridgeStreet Accommodations (www.bridgestreet.com), which offers more than 4,000 executive units in 44 American cities and nearly 40 places abroad.
