E-pinions
by Stephen Bruce, PhD, PHR

Employee leave—whether it’s vacation, sick time, or PTO—is frustrating enough, without worrying about what your competitors are up to. You need facts about best practices, and our Employee Leave Survey will ferret them out. But only if you help.

For years, BLR® has surveyed HR and compensation/benefits professionals to find trends in policy and practice. We appreciate your participation in our series of brief, targeted surveys. Today’s survey topic: Employee Leave Survey.

We’ll publish the results in a future issue, and we’ll also send you a PDF report. (Be sure to include your contact information where prompted.)

Please participate in this brief survey and together we’ll get answers to these questions and more:

  • What kinds of paid leave are offered to employee—separate vacation and sick leave or PTO?
  • How much paid leave is offered per year?
  • How does the amount of leave vary with years of service?
  • Is donating paid leave to other employees allowed?

Please take this brief survey and see how your existing practices and future plans stack up against those of the country’s most successful companies. The survey takes only a few minutes and it will help you stay on top of your industry and keep your organization competitive.

    Will the results account for differences in state leave laws? Just curious–I know that’s a lot to ask.
