Points to be Noted*
  • Holidays are subject to change for the Uplers Talent Solutions pool. We are open to making changes for the listed holidays as per the prior informed business needs of the Client and need to be communicated to the respective Account Managers.
  • We have observed that maximum leaves are requested during Diwali and the Indian new year as everyone likes to celebrate them with families. So, we would request to plan tasks, keeping team bandwidth in mind.
  • 2022 is the year of long weekends! This year, most of our predefined holidays are falling at the start or end of the working week, i.e., Friday or Monday. To facilitate smooth deliveries, we recommend mapping and prioritizing the tasks considering a chance of long holiday planning happening around these days.
