The word “Workation” comes from a fusion of the words “work” and “vacation”. This concept arises from a growing trend where companies organize work trips where employees can also relax to improve productivity. This trend is also growing in popularity due to the surge in digital nomads who are forming workaways in different countries across the globe where they co-share and co-work from a property. There are different types of workations: short, medium, and long-term where workers can take a shorter trip for a weekend or up to years in destinations either close to their home or further afield.
There are many benefits to workations including increased job satisfaction, less burnout, improved productivity and morale, and lower employee turnover. After all, who would say no to a vacation?
