“Work hard. Play hard” has been the adage of professionals for ages, yet the playing always follows working, if you’re lucky. Sometimes, that playing may mean one nightcap before waking up at the crack of dawn the next day to make a five-hour flight to a three-hour meeting.

Business travel is a wearisome necessity for many professionals who are supporting families and eager to advance their careers. Fortunately, millennials are reinforcing the fact that business and pleasure blend beautifully and effectively.

‘Bleisure’ Makes Millennials Feel Happier About What They Do

New research suggests that millennials aren’t falling in line with the old adage, and a new line of thought has emerged. Business and pleasure are meant to be together. Why can’t you have your cake and eat it, too?

Apparently, business is pleasure — especially when there’s cake — as 81% of millennials associate business travel with happiness and job satisfaction, according to last year’s MMGY Global survey on American travelers. Millennials are also taking the most trips out of all age groups — 7.7 annually.

Increasing technology and staying at preferred hotels with updated tech means that millennials can stay in touch with co-workers, friends and family with the tap of a finger. More hotels and airlines are offering services focused on the traveler’s pleasure. According to the same survey, 73% of millennials rate leisure time on business travel as important, more so than to boomers at 46% or gen Xers at 56%. As the biggest generation in business, millennials are making waves in how a business trip is typically defined.
