FullContact, a Denver-based software company, began giving its employees a minimum of three weeks paid vacation time (more is given if needed) and $7,500 cash if they “completely disconnect from work.”
FullContact co-founder and CEO Bart Lorang explained the policy to Monster.com as a matter of supporting organizational culture.
“At FullContact, the core value is ‘Be Awesome with People.’ Since ‘worldly’ is the W in awesome, we encourage people to travel the world,” Lorang said. “As a result, I get more productive, happier employees. I would rather have them super-productive and supercharged when they’re working rather than constantly at a 70- to 60-percent state.”
