Everyone Meet Bart Lorang who just may one of the best bosses ever.
Bart is the CEO of Denver-based internet start-up FullContact API.
Bart offers his employees $7,500 for what he calls “paid, paid vacation (on top of the minimum 15 paid vacation days per year),” however there are 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.”
HOW FREAKING AWESOME IS THAT??? That is so Feel Good Depot Awesome I don’t know what to say!!
You sir freaking ROCK… I really need to submit an application (Though I admit these days I am more Project Manager that Tech Guy).
While $7,500.00 is nice… I want the NO emails, no calls, no NADA time OFF!!!
In this day of corporate profitability it is indeed NICE to see a company take care of their employees like this.
While tech companies are known for their perks… this one is a really good deal!!!
Good Luck to all @ Full Contact API and to Mr. Lorang… I wish you all the best of successes!!
You can read all about the idea and how it came to be here (it’s a good read… trust me, these people just “GET IT”):
Aren’t you soooooo envious right now??? lol
