TransferWise, a money transfer startup, takes staff away on an annual all-expenses paid holiday — perhaps a little like Taylor Swift, who took 125 crew members on holiday to Hamilton Island, Australia as a reward after her "1989" tour.
Opus Professional Services, meanwhile, offers a villa in Italy that employees can use for free whenever they like. And if they work hard, rewards include trip to Las Vegas, Miami and the Monaco Grand Prix, according to the recruitment specialist's website.
Meanwhile, accommodation crowd-sharing website, Airbnb, offers staff $2,000 in travel vouchers.
The John Lewis Partnership, an employee-owned firm operating department stores and supermarkets, offers subsidized holidays at hotels and caravans it owns in the U.K., to places like the Lake District and Brownsea Island in Dorset.
Partnership employees also get 50 percent subsidies on tickets to the theater, opera, concerts, exhibitions and museums, up to a maximum amount a year.
