Luxury travel operator Luxtripper has announced that it is now offering unlimited holidays and the ability to work anywhere in the world for its 100-plus members of staff based across the UK and India.
According to the business, which plans to increase its employee headcount by up to 50% in the next 12 months, this consists of 33 days’ paid leave and then unlimited unpaid extra holiday days. Remote working is allowed from anywhere in the world as long as members of staff have a good internet connection and the ability to work UK hours.
Introduced this week, the new perks are part of a wider employee benefits overhaul, which includes cost-price holidays, structured personal development programmes, and a full employee assistance programme to provide wellbeing support for staff and their families.
The organisation is in the process of hiring for next year and is currently recruiting for roles across marketing, technology, sales, customer experience, finance and product.
Nena Chaletzos, founder and CEO of Luxtripper, explained that she sees an investment in staff an investment in the organisation’s future, and she hopes that this new suite of benefits for employees will take the company from strength to strength.
“As a fast-growing business we’re always looking for great talent, and we want the best to join us on this exciting journey as we continue to invest in our technology and product offering to bring more incredible experiences to our clients,” she said.
Victoria Kiss, talent manager at Luxtripper, added that since the start of the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, staff, who she considers to be the business’ biggest asset, have gone above and beyond for customers and for each other, so this was an easy decision to make.
“We’re brought together by a passion for great customer service, but also a passion for travel, and we want our employees to get out and enjoy the world as much as our customers do,” she said.
