Employers are increasingly turning to paid time-off banks to help them schedule unexpected—and planned—absences from work.

The reason is clear: On any given day, nearly one in 10 employees is unexpectedly absent from work—costing employers hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, and creating a paper trail nightmare for HR.

And, while there's no way to completely eliminate unscheduled absenteeism, a Harris study has confirmed what many HR professionals already know: that Paid Time-Off (PTO) banks are the most effective tool available to help control unplanned absenteeism.

With this comprehensive webinar recording, you can learn all of the pros and cons of instituting a PTO program at your organization—in just 90 minutes. Order your copy today!

Harris also found that illness accounts for only 35% of unscheduled absences. The other 65%: Family Issues (21%), Personal Needs (18%), Entitlement Mentality (14%) and Stress (12%).

PTO Banks combine all time off—sick time, holidays, mental health days, and vacation time—into a pool employees can use as they wish, when they wish.

Employers that have switched to PTO programs report easier administration, fewer last-minute no-shows, true cost savings, improved morale and greater ability to attract and engage talent—all while providing their employees more flexibility in taking time off.
