  1. 1. SHRM Survey Findings: 2013 Holiday Schedules October 22, 2012
  2. 2. Key Findings• Which 2013 holidays will most organizations observe? The 2013 holidays that most (90% or more) organizations will observe are: • New Year’s Day (Tuesday, January 1) • Memorial Day (Monday, May 27) • Independence Day (Thursday, July 4) • Labor Day (Monday, September 2) • Thanksgiving Day (Thursday, November 28) • Christmas Day (Wednesday, December 25)• Which religious holidays in 2013 will most organizations observe? Overall, few organizations will be completely closed on religious holidays other than Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Forty-five percent of organizations will be closed on Christmas Eve and 99% of organizations will be closed on Christmas Day. The next most popular religious holiday is Good Friday: 21% of organizations reported their offices will be closed on Good Friday. Many companies, in lieu of structuring their holiday calendar around specific religious holidays, encourage their employees to observe days of religious or other special significance through paid time off (PTO), accrued vacation, personal leave or floating holidays. According to SHRM’s 2012 Employee Benefits research report, 51% of organizations provide a PTO plan, 43% provide a stand-alone paid vacation plan, 40% offer paid floating holidays and 26% provide paid personal days.• What percentage or organizations will be closed between Christmas and New Year’s Day? Overall, 12% percent of organizations reported their offices will be completely closed during this time period. SHRM Survey Findings: 2013 Holiday Schedules ©SHRM 2012 2
