According to new press release, Zapier, a workflow automation tool company has announced a “delocation” package for incoming employees who are living the San Francisco area. However, Zapier is allowing employees to choose the city that best meets their requirements.
Many companies are offering their employees relocation packages if they want to move to a new city. According to Wade Foster, co-founder and CEO of Zapier, when they started hiring talents for the company, they simply hired the best people. Most of the talents lived outside the Silicon Valley because the company originated from the Midwest.
After 5 years, Zapier employed more than 80 employees, all of them from remote places across 13 countries and 22 states. Since Zapier was a 100% remote company, they did not have any plans of establishing a centralized headquarter. The business model worked well for the company and the best talents were incentivized to live and work elsewhere in the world.
With the foundation of a successful remote setup, Zapier recognized that they have talents in the Silicon Valley who wanted to live in another place and continue to pursue their career goals. This is the reason why Zapier offered the “delocation” package for applicants in the San Francisco area who wanted a tech career opportunity in another city.
The package offered includes $10,000 reimbursement for relocation expenses for the first 3 months of work; however, employees who will take advantage of the opportunity needs to remain with the company for at least a year.
The $10,000 relocation offer is a very attractive package particularly for the millennials who want to relocate to the big cities and make a career in the technology industry. Employees will be encouraged to perform their best because they will be living under ideal personal circumstances. They can relocate to a location that aligns with their desired lifestyle.
