Employee Benefit News
'Tis the season for holiday PTO, a time of year many employees look forward to. However, according to a recent survey by FinanceBuzz, nearly two-thirds of employees say their employer doesn't respect their time off. 40% of Americans say they won't be able to enjoy their time off with friends and family because of work stress. Additionally, 60% of workers will be checking their work emails during the holidays this year. 22% say they feel pressure from their employer to do so and 16% state it is expected of them. Work-life balance has been a buzz word for a little while now, but many are still struggling to achieve it. Why? Some say expectations about time off are not clear from management. Others believe management needs to lead by example and truly disconnect from work during their time off. Will we see a change in PTO expectations?
