To assess the workplace benefits of providing paid time off

To assess the workplace benefits of providing paid time off (PTO), the Human Resources (HR) Department implements and evaluates different PTO plans at each of the company’s three sites: Site 1 will serve as the control group; employees at this site will continue to receive 2 weeks of PTO per year. Employees at Site 2 will receive 2 weeks of PTO per year plus the fourth Friday of each month off (with pay). Employees at Site 3 will receive 3 weeks of PTO per year. The HR Department will use a web-based survey to gather the following data from all employees: score on the Acme Morale Scale (1 = extremely low morale . . . 25 = extremely high morale).
