Average Paid Time Off


The average number of paid days off (like vacations, personal days) that an employee takes during a specified timeframe, usually annually.

Monitoring this KPI can help companies ensure work-life balance for their employees, prevent burnout, and maintain productivity levels. High or low averages might indicate cultural or policy issues that need addressing.


Total number of paid days off taken by all employees / Total number of employees


If in a company of 100 employees, 1200 days off are taken collectively during a year, the average is 12 days per employee.
