Recently at QP3 ErgoSystems, we conducted an unscientific survey to learn about what people want to do yet this year, and what may influence their willingness to patronize a particular travel company, hotel, restaurant, bar, or other business.
From our survey, 21.4% were small business owners, managers, 21.4% were in the hospitality industry, and 57.1% were individual consumers/travelers. Of those responding, we received the following feedback:
93% indicated plans to eat a restaurant or bar (dine-in)
85.7% shared plans to take an overnight driving trip requiring a hotel stay
78.6% plans to patronize a local small business
50% plan to stay home/local part or all of the time
42.9% plan to take a plane trip with or without an overnight hotel stay
When asked whether they would be more likely to do business with a travel, hospitality company, or other local business that did the following, the results were telling:
14.3% are more likely to do business with a company that only did the minimum to keep customers/guests safer from COVID-19
28.6% are more likely to do business with a company that used an internal process to keep others safer from COVID-19
57.1% are more likely to do business with a company that had been audited and certified by a third-party with expertise in health and safety regarding COVID-19 best practices.
At QP3 ErgoSystems, our experts in industrial hygiene, safety, hazardous materials management, public health, and ergonomics have developed that third-party COVID-19 Best Practices Audit and Certification. Our audit is one of the most thorough available, particularly for the hospitality industry.
Client companies that achieve a 90% rating or above will receive a certification plaque, a digital badge, and a window sticker for their front entrance.
We are ready to help you keep your employees and guests, and yourself, safer from COVID-19. We can conduct these program reviews virtually for small businesses (sign up on our website,) or onsite for large operations and properties (contact us for details and pricing.)
We also offer online LMS-based training for hospitality (English & Spanish) and for general industry COVID-19 best practices.
