Posted November 23, 2012 by Marcy Twete in Life After Five
If you’re one of the Americans working on Black Friday (assuming you don’t work in retail, in which case, you knew what you were getting into!), chances are you’re not super happy with your company today. You eat a huge meal, veg out on your couch, and while your uncle and your brother get to sit in front of the TV all day feeling thankful for yesterday’s meal and their company’s handsome PTO/Vacation/Holiday benefits, you’re slaving away (or Facebooking away more likely) at your desk.

Check out the infographic below and learn more about how companies in America just don’t seem to get it when it comes to time-off benefits. Only 2% of American companies offer unlimited PTO, but those companies see incredible benefits. Check out a few of them below and learn more about how vacation and PTO time are beginning to affect the decisions we all make about hiring.

Thanks to Mashable for this great infographic!
