Comparing Vacation Time to Other Companies
Hi-- We have a new executive who is making some changes to our company policies, or at least wants us to take a fresh look at some of them. He specifically wants me to take a look at our current vacation policy (this precedes me, and was in place long before I got here). It seems he thinks we are being too generous with our policy, or at the very least, wants me to justify our current policy by showing him evidence that it's the norm for a company in our industry (retail).
I want to find something that not only considers our industry, but takes into account length of service, etc. I know that there are no fast and easy guidelines for determining what's appropriate, but does anyone have any suggestions for where to begin researching this? Or any resource I can useto benchmark what we're currently doing against the vacation policies of other companies?
