CEO Pays Employees $7,500 to Go on Vacation … If They Comply With His Rules
The CEO of software company FullContact is paying his employees to stay out of complete contact. Employees at the Denver-based company will be paid $7,500 dollars to take a vacation. The catch? They have to follow his rules, which are as follows:
1) Employees can’t use their phones or any other technology. No emailing, no texting … nothing.
2) They aren’t allowed to do any work.
staying at home doesn’t count; they have to actually go somewhere.
Let’s get this straight … employees would be getting paid by their boss to go on a trip and not do any work. Sounds easy, right? But in a society where people actually report suffering from things like ringxiety and phantom vibration syndrome, could this type of vacation be more stressful than relaxing?
See what The Five co-hosts think about this idea and tell us, would you be able to give up all technology to go on a paid vacation?
