The purpose of PTO (Paid Time Off) in an organization is to be able to provide employees with a flexible paid time off from work that can be used for needs such as a vacation, family illness or personal, doctor appointments, school, and other activities of the employee’s choice. The organization’s goal is to reduce unscheduled absences and the need for supervisor oversight.
