Companies giving their U.S. employees paid time off to vote
1. Check in. Is your team made up of hourly workers, parents, remote employees? What barriers do they face in getting to the polls? What is your existing company policy? What are the legal requirements in your state(s)?
2. Pick your policy. Whether you're creating a new holiday, taking off the afternoon, or simply encouraging your employees to take a few hours from the workday to go vote, implement a policy that works for your company and its unique needs.
3. Get prepared. Add Election Day to the calendar and queue up a few messages to the team from leadership that will encourage employees to use their time to vote.
