This research sought to determine what types of policies organizations are implementing in regard to political activities in the workplace, particularly as they relate to the 2016 presidential election. The survey also looked at whether organizations encouraged their employees to vote in political elections and whether employees were given time off to vote.

  • 72% of HR professionals indicated their organizations discouraged political activities in the workplace.
  • 24% of organizations had a written (i.e., formal) policy on political activities, and 8% had an unwritten (i.e., informal) policy.
  • 86% of HR professionals indicated their organizations allowed employees to take either paid (53%) or unpaid (33%) time off to vote.
