When Lana Johnson was job-hunting last fall, flexible hours were an absolute must. With three young boys at home and a husband who travels frequently, Johnson needed a job that could work around her kids' schedule. And she found it as PR coordinator for Moby Wrap, a baby carrier company in California where she works out of the office twice a week while her youngest is in preschool. She clocks more hours from home during her three-year-old's naptime and after all three kids are in bed. One of her coworkers also made the transition back to the office by bringing her 12-month-old to work with her every day.
