Yolk Recruitment Ltd., based in Cardiff, announced via LinkedIn that more than 50 employees will be traveling to Tenerife in Spain. It said it is likely to be one of the first businesses in the area to offer an all-expenses-paid vacation for all employees.
"Our goal is to build a culture that wins for everyone!" It stated that this all-inclusive company holiday means that no one is left behind.
This offer is available to all employees who were hired January or February. The company hopes to add more people by then. The company advertised 20 additional positions for the same position.
According to company , the four-day trip will be held over a long weekend that begins on April 1. It will cost more that PS100,000. (or $135 515).
Pavan Arora, Chief Commercial Officer, described the initiative as "employee-care," and told the BBC that the company wanted to show appreciation for employees' hard work during the pandemic.
Arora stated that 2020 was a difficult year for the entire industry. We went from the job market being on hold to going into overdrive. "Our staff has been on a journey -- from going to remote work to hybrid back to distant... so we wanted to reach out to everyone and say thanks for the past two years."
The pandemic has put workers in all industries to their limits. There is a lot of burnout and resignations.
One interesting solution to the problem is that some companies are now creative in encouraging employees to use their free time, The Wall Street Journal reported last ye.
For instance, Citigroup has offered companywide days off with the aim of getting everyone to take a break at the same time, and PricewaterhouseCoopers is offering U.S. staffers $250 for every full week of vacation booked, up to $1,000 a year.
