Great challenge. Thanks, @TC_bot !

 

Workflow:

Spoiler
I tried to make mine somewhat dynamic, in case we had a much larger/more complex list of employees.

For a large list of employees, it would be more efficient to do the Cartesian product on employees x holidays rather than employees x all days (as I did here). We'd just need to make sure we don't drop employees who either didn't have any holidays in their region (or didn't match to an available holiday list).

I know I could have just counted the results from the report output, but this was an opportunity to bring out this crazy-but-useful formula from @jdunkerley79 (which I learned about from a previous weekly challenge!)

Good challenge, did it slightly differently to a few that I saw with using the Find and Replace to append on the holidays. This does require a Select to amend the Data Types though!

A fun challenge and a great example of the Generate Rows tool! 

 

Always copy and paste the date example whenever I come across a challenge like this!

I tried to make the process dynamic by allowing the employees to be provided in a list.
