So you spend your days dreaming of taking a vacation. Only problem is, you don’t get enough time off at your job, and you don’t have the money to actually go anywhere.
But what if you worked for an employer that actually encouraged you to take vacations? And helped you pay for it? Wouldn’t that just be glorious?
Job search site Glassdoor recently compiled a list of the companies with the best travel and vacation perks. These are nine of the best.
Airbnb essentially invented the idea of traveling the world while paying to stay in other people’s homes. The company offers its employees $2,000 worth of travel coupons each year, a perk that fits perfectly with its ethos.
