Each year our list of holidays will differ. We are however always announcing 12 holidays that fall on weekdays.
We determine the holiday list this way: 1) we consider the typical public holidays in Kerala 2) we consider the most important festivals in each three major religions in Kerala 3) we prioritize holidays that fall adjacent to a weekend 4) we consider Swedish holidays and popular vacation periods to minimize the impact on clients and reduce the project stress on our colleagues.
If any member of staff requires a leave to attend a festival that is not in this list of holidays, that should not be a problem. Just apply for the leave as early as possible.
