The Pre-cation: Fad or Legit Employee Benefit?

Some Companies Are Offering Paid Vacations Before Employees Even Start

What's the Downside?

As stated, this is not a trend that we’re likely to soon see hit every corporation in America, and there are a number of reasons for this. Monetarily speaking, a business would need to have the funds that would allow them to provide paid time off, which isn’t the case for every company out there. Having a more flexible vacation days policy may be a budding trend in the startup world, but it hasn’t extended much further.

Additionally, some workers may not be able to fully relax on a vacation if they’re stressed about starting a new job. For some, putting work out of your mind can be difficult, regardless of when your vacation falls. So for workers with that mindset, preparing for a new job might be a better way to relax.
