Manage Holiday Requests

Are you responsible for managing the vacation requests of multiple people, or even multiple teams? If so, we know that the time required to manage this process can cost you a lot of time, energy and most importantly, money! Using an automated system to manage time-off and holiday requests can cost as little as £4 per month/employee. Oftentimes, manually managing these processes, can cost you double, if not more!

Bank Holiday Scotland 2022

Second of January

In Scotland, contrary to the rest of the UK, the second of January is a Bank Holiday. Hence, this Bank Holiday allows families to continue celebrating Hogmanay (which is simply another way of calling the celebration of New Year’s Eve in Scotland) for one more day. Usually, people spend this day relaxing with their loved ones and/or recovering from the festivities.


August Bank Holiday

Usually, in the UK, the August Bank Holiday takes place on the last Monday of August. In Scotland, however, it lands on the Monday after the first weekend of August. Originally the Summer Bank Holiday was created so that people could spend their day in leisure. On this day, many people choose to spend it playing and attending cricket matches. Nowadays, it is common for people to spend an extended weekend in the summer season.

Saint Andrew’s Day 2022

Contrary to many Bank Holidays that existed over the decades, Saint Andrew’s Day has only been a public holiday for the last 13 years (since 2007). Saint Andrew’s Day was established as a Public Holiday in order to honour traditional Scottish celebrations.

Associated to Saint Andrew’s Day, lots of Folkloric fests are organised throughout Scotland.
