San Francisco commute times are among the worst in the U.S. with an average of 52.9 minutes. Let’s say it takes an employee one hour to get into the office. That’s 2 hours a day for 5 days a week, which is 40 hours a month commuting. This roughly equates to an entire additional week of work that can be utilized for productivity.
Most people in the U.S. get a few weeks of paid time off, but not everyone takes advantage of it — in fact, according to a recent Fortune study, 54% of American workers did not take all their days off in 2016. Despite the under-utilization of industry standard time-off plans, a few employers are beginning to take a different approach by offering an unlimited paid time off (PTO) policy.
