With Staffing World 2015 entering its finally days, it's time to give kudos to the many of you making the sacrifice of leaving family and home to go help your companies and the industry push the envelope on what's possibly in making employment efficient.
At the same time I'm reminded being away takes its toll on marriage. I'm reminded of the husband/business-partner who jetted off to a staffing conference with a service rep and the checkbook. That didn't end well.
I looked around for articles on the topic,and this one by seob seemed to cover it pretty well without getting too preachy. Here's a snippet:
There used to be a time when husbands and wives who were left at home while their partners went off to conferences had to worry about whether they were really at the conference or if they jetted off on some romantic holiday with someone else. Well, now they really should be worrying about what goes on at those conferences instead. And if you value your marriage and are thinking about hitting up a conference? You would do well to skip the whole conference scene all together, or limit it to a single day get in early and leave late plan rather than be tempted with a lonely night in your hotel room that might not end up being lonely after all.
