greytHR helps you easily set up the holiday list, which is frequently consulted by employees, managers, and HR throughout the year. This page displays all the Holidays declared for the year. You can also manage the Holiday calendar here. You may define the same holidays across the organization or have a different list across various employee categories. Provision is provided to introduce Restricted / Floating / Optional holidays. This enables employees to choose the Holiday that they want from among a prespecified set of days.
