If there’s any place that desperately needs to bring back visitors during these pandemic times, it’s Hawaii. Doing that as creatively and as safely as possible would be great, right? Well, Hawaii is off to a good start. It just launched a State of Hawaii remote worker relocation program. Remote work from Hawaii sounds good to me! It’s called “Movers and Shakas”.
How Will the “Movers and Shakas” Remote Worker Program Work?
To start, 50 remote workers will receive a FREE round trip ticket to Hawaii! The newly launched remote work program aims at two particular populations: former Hawaii residents, and those from out-of-state who want to work remotely from the islands.
The program, however, is not all about what remote workers will be getting. “Movers and Shakas” incorporates a unique “give and get” approach. Hawaii is looking to offer this opportunity to people who are passionate about the values of Hawaii and who also have the skills and willingness to contribute back to the local community.
What does giving back to the local community mean? Participants will contribute their skill sets and knowledge to the community and businesses while in Hawaii. Remote workers will take a “Pledge to Our Keiki,” making a commitment to respect the culture and natural resources of Hawaii.
If this opportunity to WFH (work from Hawaii) interests you, fill out an online application by December 15, 2020. As I mentioned, fifty applicants who meet the qualifications will be chosen for the first round of participants. They will receive a free round-trip ticket to Oahu.
Along with a free ticket, “Movers and Shakas” program participants receive exclusive discounts on month-to-month accommodations, flights, restaurants, attractions and other services while in Hawaii.
Tourism is a main economic resource for Hawaii, and it needs relief due to the impact of the pandemic. Remote work from Hawaii is one option. This “Movers and Shakas” program is both a creative and hopefully effective way to find some relief while also creating a way to increase local resources through connecting local and out-of-state professionals.
