Travel Counsellors support the first day at school

It’s back to school time! For parents and children, it can be a time of angst or pure joy. Either way, there is something very special about a child’s first day at school. Travel Counsellors recognise what an important milestone it is and so in 2017, announced that any staff who have a child off to school for the first time, will be given a bonus day off!

On the policy, Anne Dugdale TC Care helpdesk supervisor and mum of a 4½-year-old commented; “I can count on 2 hands the number of times I have picked up or dropped off my daughter Romy at childcare and kinder over the past 4 years; and every time, I was that crazy, flustered mom that runs in and out… I have missed some of her most special events because I’ve needed to travel or cover the helpdesk.” Taking advantage of the new policy this week, Anne said: “Today, we walked to school as a family and there was no panic, no watching the clock. Romy knew I would be there at the end of day to welcome her outside the classroom.”

Business Development Executive Michaela Jones took the day to join her youngest son, 5-year-old Frankie for his first day. She said: “It meant so much to me to have the day out of the office on Frankie’s very first day of primary school. I really appreciate having the support of my colleagues and management at Travel Counsellors who understand the importance of flexibility and being there for your family. Back in the office the next day, my whole team were excited to know how the day went and they all wanted to make sure I was ok!”

Working as a Travel Counsellor affords an agent the freedom to set their own schedule, and with opportunities like this, head office staff can enjoy those special moments with loved ones too.
