What is a workcation?
A workcation takes flexible working to a whole new level, enabling employees to work from anywhere in the world rather than just from their homes, and to work during hours that suit them while doing so. This enables workers to travel – such as to visit family members who live abroad – without using up annual leave or taking unpaid leave. This is becoming an increasingly popular benefit offered by large employers; for example, PLC permits its UK and US staff to work from anywhere for up to 8 weeks each year.
How can businesses benefit from workcations?
Workcations can be beneficial for both employers and employees. Benefits may include:
What do employers need to consider?
Has remote working gone too far?
Organisations may benefit from implementing a workcation policy; however, they should also consider the hazards. The main challenges lie around tax, data protection and insurance implications – as well as considering whether a workcation policy is right for your sector and workforce. This should be researched and planned for before a new policy is introduced.
