IASA Member Polls

Each month, the IASA Industry Pulse takes a quick read on issues important to the industry.
"Work/Life Balance"

The February 2015 IASA Industry Pulse poll was the final in a new three-part series on Employee Benefits and focused on “Work/Life Balance”.  Each month we will build on what we learned from the prior month’s poll to give members an in-depth view and the ability to ask questions on how employee benefits are being handled membership wide.

This poll asked about job/work hour flexibility, commute time, PTO and after hour work requirements.  
•    81% of respondents indicated that their travel time to work (roundtrip) is less than 1 hour. .
•    79% responded that they are able to work at home occasionally or frequently and 65% of participants responded that their employers provide flexible hours in which to better manage their schedules.
•    75% of respondents indicated that their company offers between 10 and 20 PTO (personal + vacation + sick) for 1-4 years of service which provides an idea of the overall paid personal time provided to newer employees.
•    62% of respondents said that they were not required to be reachable (cell phone or email) after work hours.
