vacation-deprived Americans, you could use one right about now. The only problem is that many Americans claim they don't have the money right now. With Outski's 401(play)™, not having funds saved will never be a problem. In an Outski world, everyone can have enough money set aside to take a trip at any given time.
401(play)™ is a means of having funds transferred directly from your paycheck into an FDIC-insured Vacation Savings Account (VSA) in your name. You choose the amount or percentage to be transferred each month.
In addition to keeping you healthy, investing in a vacation strengthens relationships, and makes for better employees. If you've been sticking it out for that promotion, perhaps the best thing you could do is take some time off to travel. Employees often return from trips feeling refreshed, relaxed, and more creative.
The best part about 401(play)™ is that you aren't paying money to someone else, the way you do with your gym membership or health insurance. All that money you're setting aside goes directly into your personal VSA, to be used at your discretion.
If you are interested in a 401(play)™, but the program isn't at your company yet, encourage your employer to add it! This is the easiest employee benefits program to implement, and it can reap some of the greatest rewards not just for you, but for your employer as well. If your employer does not offer 401(play)™ yet, but you would like to participate, you may also sign up as an individual by filling out the direct deposit form. This is located in the Travel Savings tab of your Outski account. For more details about 401(play)™, visit our 401(play)™ FAQs page.
Before you go get your employer to sign on for 401(play)™, help us out by answering our mini poll:
