Jeju is no longer merely a destination for rest and travel; it has become a favored workplace for those seeking respite from the daily grind. “Workation,” combining the advantages of work and a vacation, has become a symbol representing Jeju. The recent seminar held in Seoul, attended by Governor Oh Younghun and representatives from 12 Jeju Workation office facilities, showcased the genuine charm of Jeju's workation culture, capturing the interest of both businesses and workers.



Korea's Workation Mecca, Jeju


Playcation, Restcation, and Workation

Jeju's exceptional leisure resources and smart work infrastructure are widely acknowledged. To solidify its position as a global workation hub, Jeju continues organizing seminars for businesses and workers. The Jeju workation concept is anticipated to play a role in indirectly attracting investments as well as expanding networks and attracting distributed offices from companies in the capital area and abroad in the long term. Beyond the mere relocation of workspaces to Jeju, the province consistently develops additional workation products, utilizing the unique content of the region. Jeju stands as an ideal location to seamlessly integrate work and leisure, offering an authentic workation experience.




Workation Elevates Jeju's Appeal


The global pandemic has reshaped our daily paradigms. Traditional norms, such as operating an office space, a 9-to-6 work schedule, and face-to-face interactions, have evolved significantly. Concepts like downsizing offices, using shared office spaces, and embracing flexible work arrangements, including working from home, have become more widely accepted. The advent of online-based smart work systems, accessible nationally and internationally, has opened up possibilities for a more liberated work environment. 

Recognizing these shifts, Jeju turned its attention to workation, offering experiences of working and staying in Jeju to companies embracing remote and distributed work. Jeju workation emphasizes its strong advantage in expanding networks with local and international businesses. By promoting workation programs, the province aims to boost investment interest in Jeju and act as a catalyst for attracting distributed corporate offices and digital talents. Furthermore, Jeju aspires to enhance competitiveness in village tourism by expanding collaborations with villages visited by workation participants, developing village-stay products, and establishing related infrastructure.

Jeju Workation Offices Satisfy Both Companies and Workers


In this seminar, Jeju Province highlighted the positive aspects of the Jeju workation program, such as offering incentives and welfare services for company employees, introducing new work environments, enhancing employees' work efficiency, and fostering a sense of belonging. The distinctiveness of Jeju's workation offices lies in the diverse concepts, environments, and facilities offered, setting them apart from those in other regions. The seminar showcased various private workation office facilities and programs across the province, providing a broader range of options for companies considering dispatching their employees. In addition to official presentations, individual one-on-one consultations were arranged among companies, representatives from Jeju Province, and private workation offices, adding more excitement to the event.

To promote the charm of Jeju workation, Jeju Province held a seminar in Seoul following one in Pangyo. The 2023 Jeju Workation Seminar in Seoul event attracted 102 participants from 50 companies, leading to explosive interest from companies in the capital region. Held in the easily accessible location of Myeongdong, the event also saw visits and consultations from citizens interested in Jeju and workation.

Governor Oh Younghun underscored the significance of this event, extending gratitude to the participating companies and citizens. He expressed, "Jeju is promoting various future industries such as green hydrogen, private space industry, and urban air mobility (UAM). Research and development professionals from diverse fields working in Jeju, collaborating and interacting with each other, can not only achieve high work efficiency but also create new achievements. I hope that Jeju workation provides a beneficial and meaningful opportunity for both companies and workers."

Workation in Jeju embodies a lifestyle rather than a travel trend. If you experience Jeju's intelligent work environment for your company or personal work, your future visits to Jeju for travel or relaxation will take on an entirely different dimension.




Mini  Interview

People we met at the 2023 Jeju Workation Seminar in Seoul


Jeju workation is perfect for improving work efficiency and enhancing employees' work-life balance.” 

Han Kyungmi, CEO of the Korean Forest Healing Research Institute

“I hope you experience Jeju's smart work environment, which is accessible from anywhere in Korea, including Seoul.”

Kim Sungmin, CEO of Jibmusil, a workation office
Jeju, with its beautiful natural environment, is a dream destination for everyone, not only for work but also for relaxation. I believe that a new work environment helps bring new ideas and improve work capabilities. Especially, workation in Jeju allows one to experience various natural environments like the sea, mountains, and urban areas, providing plenty of choices. At this seminar, I learned about various offices, and utilizing Jeju workation vouchers can reduce the financial burden on the company. So, I plan to incorporate this opportunity into our employee welfare program.
Workation is already experienced by many globally, and famous tourist destinations are becoming known as workation havens for nomadic workers. Jibmusil, aiming to be the "most efficient work lounge closest to home," operates eight offices in locations such as Seoul and Bundang. Work Stay Jeju, a Jibmusil office in Jeju, allows you to experience Jeju's outstanding natural landscape during your stay for work, offering a new work experience in a completely different environment. I hope both companies and employees will experience innovation and satisfaction through Jeju workation.
