Caroline McCarthy, during her work with various companies like CNET, CBS, and Google, found herself traveling a lot. Whether it was heading to a commentator gig for Countdown with Keith Olbermann or spearheading Google’s presence at industry events, she enjoyed when her employers offered a choice with regard to business travel.

“I have worked in large company environments where we did not have a managed travel program,” says McCarthy. “I find that is one of the most empowering things a company can put into its company culture.”

For example, employees might choose hybrid trips that fuse business and leisure travel – leaving a few days early, or staying the weekend in a popular city. To McCarthy, the best thing a business can do is offer its employees a viable means to accomplish that fusion of work and pleasure travel; it is a win-win for everybody involved.

Joining us at Tech Cocktail Week, McCarthy shared more tips for setting up a better business travel program at your company. Here is the video:
