Royex Technologies Declares New Working Hours In Accordance With New Government Guidelines

In compliance with the new government guidelines, Royex Technologies declares new working hours, whereby our work week will be from Monday to Friday with a two-hour break (12:30 pm-2:30 pm) for the prayer break on Fridays, starting from 1st January 2022.

The governments of six emirates have embraced the UAE's new workweek in the local government sector, in keeping with the UAE's vision and efforts to stay on top of worldwide trends and continue making progress on global competitiveness metrics across all sectors.

From January 1, 2022, the system will be adopted in all Federal government bodies across the Emirates, with the workweek running from Monday to Thursday and Friday being a half-day. Government personnel will work Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and Fridays until 12:00 p.m.

Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, and Fujairah are among the six emirates that have declared the implementation of the new system in the new year.

Sharjah, on the other hand, will switch to a four-day workweek on January 1, 2022, with the new weekend consisting of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Throughout the week, government employees across the UAE, including those in Sharjah, will work for eight hours from 7.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m.

On Fridays, Sharjah residents will get a day off, while those in other Emirates will work for 4.5 hours, from 7.30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Nonetheless, the system's implementation will take into account government institutions whose operations necessitate alternate arrangements. In accordance with applicable directives and laws, the flexible and remote work system would be maintained.


How will the private sector react adapt to the change?

Under the new government policy, the private sector in the UAE would have complete freedom in scheduling their weekends. Many firms, large and small, will decide on the best approach during the next two weeks. The large government-affiliated firms – whether in real estate, energy, services, or other sectors – are likely to opt for a two-and-a-half weekend.

The way firms and the private sector adjust to the new work week-weekend will be determined by the sort of activity they engage in. According to market sources, it will most likely be business as usual in the healthcare and retail industries.
