Discussing this volatility - and what employers are doing about it - is SHRM Workforce Analytics Director Evren Esen, SHRM-SCP. Quick Facts:
    72% of HR professionals indicated their organizations discouraged political activities in the workplace.
    24% of organizations had a written (i.e., formal) policy on political activities, and 8% had an unwritten (i.e., informal) policy.
    86% of HR professionals indicated their organizations allowed employees to take either paid (53%) or unpaid (33%) time off to vote.
