New statistics also available on employer-paid holidays for part-time vs. full-time workers
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — Christmas Day, Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day – all holidays that the majority of employers (94 to 95 percent) plan to offer workers in 2014, according to the 2014 Holiday Schedules survey report released today by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM).
Findings from the survey also show that few organizations plan to close their doors on religious holidays other than Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Additionally, the survey gives statistics on paid and floating holidays that organizations will offer part-time employees – data that was not available in last year's study.
“The part-time worker population is an important piece of an organization’s workforce,” said Evren Esen, manager of SHRM’s Survey Research Center. “Therefore, it was important to show any disparities in time off compared to full-time employees. Adding statistics on this group was an important component of this year’s report.”
According to the survey, most full-time employees (78 percent) will receive six to 10 paid holidays per year, while most part-time workers (51 percent) will receive up to five paid holidays per year.
The top five 2014 holidays that most organizations will observe are:

This survey included responses from 606 randomly selected HR professionals at organizations of all sizes throughout the United States.
