Call blocking

On my phone running Android Pie, I use Contacts app for unwanted calls blocking and it works really well. However, it is missing one feature which I have previously suggested to Google too, namely blocking contacts in bulk. This could be easily achieved as group/label blocking. When I go on holiday, I want to block all calls from work, for example. Currently, I have to go through every one contact and manually block it. I only have 10+ contacts from work, but what if I had 100?

I could put my phone in Do not Disturb mode and whitelist contacts that I want to be able to reach me, but this seems like a roundabout way of doing it, plus I'd have to create exceptions for various apps to get through.

I tried various call blocking/blacklist apps but they were no good. Does anyone know of a good solution or can recommend an app which actually works?
