Nearly all (98%) employers report that their organization offers part-time work, and over one-third of these companies report that more than 10% of their workforce are part-time employees, according to a recent survey of Benefits for Part-Time Employees by BLR.
About 85% of respondents provide prorated holidays and vacation to their part-time workforce. This represents a significant increase over the approximately 35% of employers who provided these benefits to part-time workers in BLR’s 2008 Survey of Employee Benefits. Similar increases occurred in the provision of paid sick leave, health insurance and life insurance to part-time employees when compared with the previous survey, conducted in late 2007.
The current survey, which garnered 1,100 responses, was conducted by BLR's HR Daily Advisor in October-November, 2010.
