Last week, we took a look at admin. professionals’ salaries and eligibility for bonuses.
This week, we’re looking at another aspect of compensation: paid vacation time. While I’ve asked readers in past Weekend Polls about vacation time in terms of Christmas or year-end holidays, we’ve not yet looked at how much paid vacation time you have each year.
Some acknowledgements, as we embark on this discussion: First, I realise that some Virtual Assistant (VA) readers are self-employed and won’t necessarily have paid vacation time.
Next, just as some readers last week might have laughed at the idea of being eligible for a bonus, others among you may find contrasts this week between your annual leave entitlements and those of others who participate in this Poll. Some sectors that aren’t known for issuing bonuses may be more likely to offer what’s seen as generous vacation allowances.
Again, as with last week’s Poll, remember that we’re also comparing this aspect of compensation across regions, countries and continents. I’d be surprised if there isn’t some disparity.
All this leads us to my latest Weekend Poll, which is focused on annual leaves/holidays/vacation entitlements and not statutory holidays.
How much paid vacation time do you have each year?
