Survey Says: Employers Generally Settled, Favoring Traditional Vacation Over PTO

From time to time, we report on surveys conducted by our friends at Employers Resource Association. This month’s survey focuses on how employers provide paid time off (PTO) to employees. The results here are straightforward:

  • A strong preference to offer traditional vacation (61 percent of respondents) over PTO (39 percent)
  • Only 13 percent of respondents indicated they are considering a change, so it seems that this preference is stable
  • A fairly even distribution among different answers for the smallest amount of leave an employee can use under the policy
Click through to see the amount of leave and how you stack up.  This is an unscientific survey, but a good base for employers on their policies.
