SAUSALITO - One in four employees say it will be more difficult for them to take time off for the holiday this year than it was last year, according to a survey by the jobs and career community Glassdoor.
Another 8 percent it would be easier and 55 percent said it would be about the same.
"It's that time of year when many want to use up some of their vacation days so they can enjoy time with friends and family. If you manage a team of people, communicate holiday vacation policies early in order to give people time to plan. Employees will appreciate hearing how to best handle vacation requests, and have a reminder of office holidays and any work-related holiday celebrations," said Rusty Rueff, Glassdoor career and workplace expert.
Rueff recommended asking for time off as early as possible if time off is important to you. For employers, first served usually works when it comes to granting time-off requests.
