Yes, you read that right. FullContact, a technology start-up, announced a new vacation policy with a twist.
They’re paying employees $7,500 each to go offline. Literally, they want their talent to enjoy time off.
According to Inc., the policy is for a “paid, paid vacation” with one catch: The employee must disconnect from work completely.
“If people know they will be disconnecting and going off the grid for an extended period of time, they might actually keep that in mind as they help build the company….At the end of the day, the company will improve.”
