Workation…. Never heard yet? Do you know exactly what it is? If you look in urban dictionary you will find the following explanation – work remotely while doing the touristy things on weekend or after work.  Why? We all know pretty much about stress at work, about the impact on us and on companies in general as the productivity decreases in a serious way due to stress at work. Eventually, routine takes a toll on employees no matter what. Consequently, the work quality reduces with time and employees start to lose motivation. For some last years we can clearly see positive trends ment to change the situation in a positive way. Companies try to alleviate that situation by having their employees work in charming offices which offer facilities to relax and temporarily get your mind off of work. Employers also provide modern, comfortable work stations and tools. In general, everything is being done so that an employee would feel good and would not burn out while at work. Unfortunately, no matter how good the conditions are - everything gets repetitive and even tedious. 

Work and travel

Workation is when employees work remotely from a vacation type place - for example, a resort, beach or an exotic country. The duration of a Workation differs depending on the type of company, with some lasting even for a month. 

By doing that, employees partially feel like they are on a vacation that is all paid for, without spending their vacation time and getting a salary during that whole time. However, they still have to perform their daily duties and spend time with colleagues.  It may seem like an expensive treat for an employer, but it eventually pays off with the motivated, happy, energetic and productive employees. It also works like a great boot camp, where teams can come up with new projects and upscale their work quality. 

Employees can go on a Workation alone or in small numbers. Still, it is not uncommon for a company to book a corporate chartered flight and take the whole staff. It happens because when all of the workers are in one place, it is much easier to communicate and be more efficient. 

The benefit of using a chartered flight, in this case, is that it is not necessary to buy tickets for the whole staff, wait in the long queues at the airport, have a specific amount of luggage and go through the massive amount of security checks. All those procedures are quite tedious and can result in a lot of confusion while travelling with a big group. Fortunately, flying private eliminates those shortcomings of a regular commercial flight.
