DUBAI: The government’s move allowing for an equal number of holidays for the public and private sectors is a “positive indication that we are mutually getting into building trust and confidence for the economy,” said the vice president of the Filipino Human Resources Practitioner’s Association, an organization more popularly known in as FilHR.

“I believe that this move generates a balance between the private and public entities in this region,” Robie Gonzales told The Filipino Times.

She said the move “may also be taken as an efficiency mechanism since our dealings with the government sectors will be attended accordingly, and hopefully, within a shorter period of time.”

From the employee point of view, this is now an opportunity to really think about balancing work and personal life, Gonzales said. “They can now consider putting on a well-planned vacation with the family or a chance to rejuvenate. I’m sure a lot of us are happy about this move and as early as now are planning how to spend the additional days,” she said.

Meantime, Jay-mar Ismael, a human resource practitioner and recruitment head at a manpower company said there may be downsides but nothing so serious that could not be addressed.

“For sure may mga challenges yan but in so far as we are concerned, we are managing it naman because we have a proper manpower planning. Kumbaga, salitan – kung sino ang tatamaan ng holiday. But at least rest assured that we will be having the same privilege or benefits,” he said
