Employees from the film and TV divisions of the Walt Disney Co. will be getting additional holidays in 2022. I hear that leaders across the company sent memos to their staffers, informing them that May 27, the Friday heading into the Memorial Day weekend, will be designated as non-working days this year. Employees will get another extra day off in October, with the exact date varying from a division to division.
I hear the additional time off has been given so employees can “recharge” after more than two years working largely remotely amid the pandemic to keep the company afloat.
A number of Disney executives already spend some time in the office on a regular basis but there is no official company date set yet for return-to-work in-person. Disney is expected to announce soon plans for having their staffers back in the offices full-time.
