PA Consulting's Clare Roberts, people and change expert, discusses the rise of 'workcations' with Dom Lawson, in an article in FT Ignites

Commenting on this, Clare says: "Organisations need clear workcation policies that are applied consistently and fairly."

Adding: "Employer and employee should understand that the workcation is still first and foremost about working, just in a different location.Employees need to understand how to enjoy the change of environment and new experiences, whilst still meeting the requirements of their role."

Clare concludes by saying: "For employers, the workcation can become a valuable part of the employee experience offer they use to enhance recruitment and retention of people with key skills. But she adds that everyone should recognise that a workcation is not a substitute for 'a proper holiday'. Employees should be encouraged to take time out to switch off completely from work."
