Hawaii Offering Free Trips To De-Stress New York Workaholics

Many of us are working tirelessly around the clock. A large part of this is due to the e-mail culture we live in. However, Hawaii plans on doing something about this, at least for New York workaholics.

According to a recent survey, over 60 percent of people work when they are on vacation. The survey was carried out by the Hawaii Tourism Association. However, 83 percent of workers reportedly feel like they are more productive when allowed to work in an environment other than their usual office setting.

In light of this survey, Hawaii is planning to host a number of New Yorkers (six, specifically) who are stressed out from their working endeavors. A week-long work escape is part of the deal.

The initiative “Work From Hawaii” is being organized by Hawaii Tourism United States and aims to provide six New Yorkers with a stress-free holiday where they can work from the Pacific location.


Anyone from doctors and lawyers to singers and writers will have the chance to come to Hawaii for a diversion from their work routine. Each person will be placed in a different Hawaiian location: the island of Hawaii, Lanai, Maui, Oahu, Kauai, and Molokai.

However, the selected six need to be extra lucky as each destination caters to a different type of profession. If one is successful though, they will be entitled to a number of luxuries during their weeklong stay.

Each destination includes a Wi-Fi friendly workspace, daily meal budgets, and an itinerary full of cool things to do. This includes visiting the royal residence of the one and only King Kamehameha.

Those who have more creative-oriented professions will be taken to the “Design Loft.” This will give one the opportunity to socialize and work with Honolulu’s many talented local artists. This program is available for New Yorkers who are aged between 24 and 36 and they must have an Instagram account that is open to the public.
