MCLEAN, Va. - Despite the rise of technology and flexibility in the workplace, a recent survey conducted by Wakefield Research* on behalf of Hilton Garden Inn, revealed women still find it challenging to juggle work and personal life needs. In fact, 71 percent of these women would clone themselves to achieve everything they need to get done in a day. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel, as the majority of respondents agreed the empowerment and insight of fellow "super-women" offers the key to help them win.

"We created Hilton Garden Inn's 'Bright On' campaign to help distinguish ourselves as the go-to destination for business women," said Judy Christa-Cathey, vice president, focused service brand marketing and Hilton Garden Inn. "We know travel is a big part of the balancing act. That's why we are on a mission to help women feel empowered and make life smoother and easier."
