Can you clarify exactly what you want to achieve, as those are two very different things. If you have already created a shared calendar and populated it with events, all you need to do is adjust the permissions so that other people can add it to Outlook. There is not way to "automap" it however, they will ahve to open it manually.

If you want to "publish" the actual events into people's own calendars, you can use some EWS-based script such as the one here: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/emeamsgdev/2012/02/13/powershell-script-to-import-calendar-items-into-exchange-mailbox-from-csv-file/

If you have configured outlook for shared mailbox, then go to company's holiday shared mailbox calendar and right click and send an invite and select all people whom require access to holiday calendar.

Once you send the invitation all users will receive the invitation in inbox and then once they open the invite the holiday calendar will be open under the default calendar of all users.

This way they will be able to access the holiday calendar in their outlook. However whatever permission you want i.e. reviewer you can do it before sending the invite.

I would suggest you use share a public folder calendar that everyone can easily access. if your company allows the use of public folders, just create the calendar there and the default permissions let everyone view it. see link for assistance:

We are not using public folders

All I want is that I have created company holiday shared mailbox with events in it and I want users should see that

That is why a public folder calendar is easier, but if you dont use public folders then the other option they mentioned will work.

Yes invite needs to be send to 500 users and it is not a daunting task then manual option.
