McGriff Employee Benefits releases its 2023 Paid Leave and Compensation Survey

October 3, 2023

Charlotte, NC – McGriff today released its 2023 Paid Leave and Compensation Survey, a comprehensive report providing insights into employer paid leave and compensation trends in the United States.

The survey, the latest in a series from the McGriff Employee Benefits division, is based on responses from 412 employers across the nation in several major industries. Key findings include:

  • The larger the employer the more likely it is to provide a more robust leave and compensation plan
  • Nearly all employers offer paid vacation, while more than half offer paid sick leave to their employees
  • Less than one-third of employers offer both maternity and paternity leave
  • Almost half of employers pay whatever is necessary to fill an open position and over half rely on cost-of-living adjustments or performance for base pay increases

“With our national survey results again pointing to the importance of retention in today's employment market, we are excited to share the results of this targeted survey with employers who are looking to shore up their paid leave offerings,” said Janie Warner, McGriff Human Resources Practice Leader.

“We're grateful to the employers who took the time to complete our latest survey. We know this information will be a tremendous asset to employee benefits decision makers as they plan for potential benefit enhancements this year,” said Nick Pearce, healthcare actuary and director of Employee Benefits Insights and Analytics for McGriff.
