Collective Hub - - AT WORK - THRIVE AWAY

Sil­i­con Val­ley-based work­flow au­to­ma­tion start-up Zapier is of­fer­ing new hires a US$10,000 bonus to pack up and leave the Bay Area, giv­ing em­ploy­ees a size­able in­cen­tive to shirk the sky-rock­et­ing costs of liv­ing in San Fran (For­tune dubbed the city’s hous­ing mar­ket “ut­terly in­sane”). With 100 per cent of the com­pany al­ready work­ing re­motely, the bonus is “an ex­per­i­ment” aimed at im­prov­ing em­ploy­ees’ life­styles. “It can be a real chal­lenge to turn the Bay Area into a life­long home, rather than a short stop some­where in our twen­ties and thir­ties,” says Zapier’s CEO Wade Fos­ter. “You should be able to work wher­ever you want and still work at a place that helps you achieve your ca­reer goals. So if you’re liv­ing in the Bay Area, but think­ing about mak­ing a change that will im­prove your fam­ily’s stan­dard of liv­ing, we’re ea­ger to help.”
