Share this post


Filipino workers—freelancers or employed—surely take note of the 2022 holidays. It’s the time where they can set schedules with family and friends this year. Aside from that, it’s also the time to rest without worrying about your job, especially for a long weekend. Meanwhile, other workers see this as an opportunity for extra pay.

On the other hand, for businesses, marking your 2022 calendars with holidays will help you strategize in advance for your goals, especially for outsourcing companies. Given the fact they are working for different clients across the globe, they need to run 24/7—even on holidays.

So, if you’re a business or an employee currently plotting schedules and to-do tasks for the whole year; make sure to mark these 2022 holidays on your calendar.
