1-Hour CareerTrack Audio Conference
Paid time off (PTO) can be a valuable tool for minimizing unplanned
employee absences, eliminating the administrative hassle of keeping track of
various types of days off, and increasing employee satisfaction. Yet, a paid
time off program also presents a number of challenges — and can cost an
organization dearly if not crafted well and administered appropriately. Is
your organization taking full advantage of the benefits a PTO policy can
provide, or are you losing time and money trying to make one work?

every organization faces the difficulty of finding the balance between what's
best for your staff and what's best for your company. Nearly all workers today

avoided with a PTO program.
