Business travel getting more friendly for the whole family

Filed under: Work Life, Places To Go, Health & Safety: Babies, Media

In my previous life I had to do a fair amount of travel for my job. Although it was always nice to get away to the beach or the city, I always missed my kids and wished I could take them with me.

More and more businesses are realizing that parents feel this way and are making efforts to hold business trips in areas that feature family friendly options.

More conferences are being held in hotels that feature companions for the 'tween and teen crowds. These guardians can take kids to see local sites or to adventure parks to keep the children entertained and out of trouble. For the younger set, drop-in day care facilities are becoming more popular. Because these services are located in resorts, they often attract care givers with degrees in childhood development or even nursing certifications. The resorts are often quite picky about their applicants and are not shy about turning away a less apt employee in favor of one with better credentials. Not a bad feature to have when you are tied up all day in a meeting and don't have to worry about the safety of your child.
