Hopefully you’re reading this on Christmas Eve, December 24.
If so, recognize that it’s Christmas Day in the Philippines because they’re ahead of you (Except if you live in Australia…then you don’t do any conversion…).
Today is a good day to send them an email wishing them Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays or whatever you want to say to them.
Tell them you’re thankful for them and for the work they do.
Remind them they have the day off.
Depending on your business needs, remind them of your work policy for the next week. For us, we let them have the whole week off but I ask that they check their email in case something goes wrong.
