Its raining holidays for techies at MNCs
Bangalore: For over 15,00,000 Indian techies who work for firms like Cisco, Intel, HP, Yahoo! and Accenture in the country, Santa couldn't have been kinder, as Uncle Sam granted them additional holidays this year, reports Times of India.

While Cisco, HP and Yahoo! are having a 10-day holiday, aligning employee holidays with customer holidays, Intel and Accenture too have announced longer holidays this year. "Not many project deliveries are pending, and deadlines are longer. These days things are pretty cool at work front. Generally, more hands are available on projects. So allotting a few additional holidays will not really hurt companies rather it will only save in terms of operational cost," said the Project Delivery Head of an MNC told Times of India.

Intel has announced a one-week paid leave for employees working on certain projects, which is over and above the 15 days annual leave that they are entitled too. Most of the employees are taking the leave during the Christmas-New Year period. However, according to sources, the leave was granted either because specific projects were completed before the prescribed time frame, or because of the outstanding work done on the project.
