The company in Gurugram named Marketing Moves and Marketing Moves Agency offered the leave to its employees.

“Today morning, I woke up with a message from my boss granting a one-day leave relaxation to everyone due to the impact of this loss. It was a surprise that none of us could believe until the official email arrived. Well, this one-day relaxation is not just a morale booster, it’s an opportunity to recover from the loss, regain mental stability, and return to work with renewed energy and spirit,” a user named Diksha Gupta shared on Linkedln.
