The lengths of annual holidays vary in different companies and different countries. Some people think that all employees are entitled to have at least 4 weeks of holidays every year. I believe that this practice would enhance the satisfaction of employees and promote the long-term development of the company.
Most employees would welcome the four-week long vocation， which means they would have more time to travel and stay with their family members. It is common for people to suffer from high stress in their work and taking more time off is an effective way to relieve this pressure. Those busy parents can take this vocation together with their children， which would increase their communication and enhance family cohesion. Some employees may take advantage of the holidays to attend training courses and improve their professional skills.
From the perspective of the company， some people may argue that long vocation would increase the labor cost and affect the normal operation. However， once the employee’s welfare is improved， they are expected to have more motivation to serve the company better. The company may need to hire more people and spend more money on human resources， but it will be rewarded in the long term if employees are happy with how they are treated in the company.
To summarize， I believe that 4-week holidays would be popular with people in workplaces as this policy can improve the quality of their lives and motivate them to make more contribution to the company. Therefore， it is also beneficial for the company’s long term development.
The charts below compare the age structure of the populations of France and India in 1984.
The two charts compare the populations of France and India in terms of age distribution by gender in the year 1984.
It is clear that the population of India was younger than that of France in 1984， with a noticeably larger proportion of people aged under 20. France， on the other hand， had a significantly larger percentage of elderly inhabitants.
In India， close to 14% of people were aged 5 or under， and each five-year age bracket above this contained an increasingly smaller proportion of the population. France’s population， by contrast， was more evenly distributed across the age ranges， with similar figures (around 7% to 8% of all people) for each five-year cohort between the ages of 0 and 40. Somewhere between 10% and 15% of all French people were aged 70 or older， but the equivalent figure for India was only 2%.
Looking more closely at gender， there was a noticeably higher proportion of French women than men in every cohort from age 50 upwards. For example， almost 3% of French 70- to 75-year-olds were women， while just under 2% were men. No significant gender differences can be seen on the Indian population chart.
