As a co-working space in Cebu, we have to keep abreast of all these holidays so that we can plan all our activities in advance. We also have to notify all members since on Regular Holidays, we cannot accept drop-ins or members who do not have 24/7 access  membership plans. We also get a lot of inquiries from our members as to what the calculation of the holiday pay is.

Here are the resources we have created to aid both our members and staff:
