What Does Workation Mean in a Text?

Workation means "Working Vacation."

A workation (sometimes referred to as a worktation) is a combination of work and a vacation. A familiar concept for self-employed people for as long as anyone can remember, the workation is now catching on with some companies, who see it as a means of attracting and retaining the best employees.

Exactly how much work you have to do on vacation for it to count as a workation isn't clear, but that is probably a question for the tax authorities!

Of course, a workation is a privilege that can only be enjoyed by those whose roles and responsibilities allow them to work remotely.
