Navigating Work and Celebrations: Your Ultimate Guide to Singapore Public Holidays with Adaptive Pay

Updated: Jul 1

As a business owner, you want to ensure continuity and avoid disruptions to your daily operations. How can you do this while still accommodating employees who need time off for cultural or religious celebrations? A cloud-based leave management system can help you achieve these goals. With this system, you can easily approve leave requests and monitor attendance or absences to support seamless operation and employee well-being.


This feature is available in Adaptive Pay’s comprehensive HRMS. Unlike other HR software solutions, our powerful, all-in-one platform allows you to manage your business from a centralised platform accessible anytime, anywhere. With Adaptive Pay, it's easier to oversee every critical human resource task — including leave management, payroll, and attendance and roster — to make your HR processes much more efficient. 


How can a cloud-based HRMS help your business navigate Singapore public holidays? 


Singapore's multicultural landscape is shaped by its Chinese, Indian, and Malay populations, alongside a growing number of foreigners, creating a cosmopolitan society where each ethnic group preserves its unique lifestyle in harmony with others. This diversity enriches Singapore with a wide range of celebrations and holidays — from socio-cultural to athletic and religious events.


Adaptive Pay simplifies the process for employees who wish to participate in these celebrations by streamlining leave requests and approvals. Through our leave management system — which is  accessible via app or browser — employees can submit leave requests and attach necessary documents. Managers receive instant notifications and can approve or deny requests on the go, with employees promptly informed of the decision.


Approved leaves are automatically integrated into Adaptive Pay's HRMS for payroll and attendance calculations. Employees can also view their remaining leave entitlements on our app, helping them plan ahead and ensuring they're aware of their available leave entitlements.

Here are the annual public holidays in Singapore: 


  • New Year's Day (January 1)

Whether you’re a manager or business owner, keeping tabs on Singapore’s public holidays can help you anticipate when employees are likely to file a leave, so you can prepare and adjust workloads as necessary. Aside from providing a reliable leave management system, Adaptive Pay also includes a cloud-based time attendance system to support your rostering needs. 


Let Adaptive Pay support your leave management, attendance, and rostering.


Our leave management system automatically integrates with our platform’s payroll and attendance modules to ensure the leaves are reflected in employee payslips. It can eliminate manual updating and simplify your workflow. With Adaptive Pay’s time and attendance module, you can remind employees about shift timings and changes in advance through the app.


Additionally, you can use Adaptive Pay’s leave management system to create custom workflows to simplify leave filings and approval and arrange custom leave entitlements for various teams. Managers can control leaves according to employment type or department to prevent short staffing and configure leaves based on hours or days.
