Labour Ministry introduces Flexitime to offer eleven hours of non-stop service

posted on 09/02/2009: 1379 views

The Ministry of Labour launched yesterday the innovative Flexitime system with an aim of providing customers eleven hours of non-stop service on weekdays.

The variable work schedule of flexi-time will replace the traditional work practice that requires employees to work a specific schedule a day.

The new arrangement will allow employees to choose flexible work hours without disrupting the requirements of work and the clientele service.

The initiative comes in implementation of the directives given by Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who asked the government departments to improve the clientele service and to step up their efficiencies to attain the targeted 70pc customer satisfaction, said Acting Director General of the Ministry Humaid Bin Deemas.

Translating this directive into practice, the Minister of Labour HE Saqr Ghobash decided to increase the working hours at the ministry to 11 hours a day and to introduce Flexitime schedule to make it easier for both employees and the clients alike.

The ministry has appointed 100 additional national employees to implement the new mechanism beginning from March, Bin Deemas disclosed at a press conference held at the ministry's office in Dubai yesterday.

The new system will allow the employees to make arrangements among themselves for their work schedules, abiding by the rules of being present at the workplace for a specific number of core work hours on workdays.

The Flexitime work system will not require all employees to work, for example, a standard 7.30am to 3.30pm day.

The Flexitime gives the employees the opportunity to be more comfortable with work schedule, subject to achieving total daily, weekly or monthly hours and subject to the necessary production achieved.

The press conference was also addressed by Director of Labour Permits department in Abu Dhabi Khalil Khouri and Director of Labour Permits department in Dubai Aisha Balherfiya. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
