Paid vacations?

  • Print

Meet everybody’s dream boss:  Bart Lorang! Yes, you can say he may be the best boss the world has ever had. Because the CEO of Denver-based internet start-up FullContact API said in a competitive market for top talent that he wants to keep his employees happy and refreshed, he gives away $7,500 for vacation packages.

The flip-flop wearing founder offers his employees $7,500 for what he calls “paid, paid vacation,” however there are rules, which are too juicy for his employees who want to grab the opportunity. And who wouldn’t?

Here are the sweetest “rules”:  “One, you actually have to take a vacation to get the money,” Lorang said. “Two, you have to disconnect from work, so that means no calls, no emails, no tweets, no work of any kind.”

 

Not surprisingly, employees said they loved having the company pick up the tab for their vacations.

“It’s a real break for your brain,” said Robbie Jack, a FullContact API employee. “You come back refreshed and reinvigorated and more excited about the stuff you were working on when you left.”

If the idea of having a boss who gives your dream vacation as a gift is tantalizing, there is good news for everyone: Lorang is hiring!   DAILY PAGE
