Accommodation for Business Travel?

Postby JaniceTaySingapore » Sat, 01 Nov 2014 9:21 am

Hi!

I am part of a university student group in SIngapore doing a survey on how business travellers search for accommodations in Singapore (both short-term and long-term stays). Hence, my team and I would really really appreciate it if any expats who are coming to stay/have stayed in Singapore would help to do our survey! :) It will be a short one and won't take long!

Nice students doing surveys should offer compensation to those who take their time to answer your survey. Otherwise no one would pay attention. Here, we often ignore surveys because it is easy work for students to get stats. Someone offered coffee coupons here before so it worked!

I stopped after reading the first question... endless divisions into age categories, stopping with 40 and above Either they are focused on a young backpacker or they've ignored the older demographic... the ones that can afford to stay in a five star hotel. No survey for me.

Agree, makes little sense. Over-focused on younger demographics with most of the questions typically concerning the +30/+40 expats. Also, what this all has to do with the business travel?

I'm willing to give these surveys a go in the belief that they are usually genuinely going to help a local student. And if the locals get another inkling into expat lives, five minutes of my time: No problem.

Unfortunately they can be structured in such a way that you come to a grinding halt. Either there is no applicable option, or the question contradicts something earlier. This seems to happen pretty often and is probably why many people simply can't be bothered trying to help.

These kind of surveys could be road-tested before being launched to the public. That would probably make them more successful.

For example, towards the end of the survey, a question that requires a free-form text reply:
'How much would be your willingness to pay per month to rent a studio apartment of your own?

Which presumes I would be willing to rent a studio... which I'm not.

p.s. I did answer as much of the rest as I could though.

Technically.... if you put 0 over there.....
