Abu Dhabi Government Adjusts Working Hours For Ramadan & Introduces Remote Work Option


The Abu Dhabi Government has unveiled its official working hours for government employees in the emirate during the holy month of Ramadan 1445 AH.

From Monday to Thursday, working hours will be from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm, while on Fridays, they will be shortened to 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

In addition to the adjusted working hours, the government has introduced a remote work option for up to 70 percent of the total number of government entity employees whose roles do not require physical presence at the workplace. This measure aims to enhance flexibility and accommodate the needs of employees while maintaining operational efficiency during the holy month.

The decision reflects the Abu Dhabi Government’s commitment to supporting its workforce and ensuring a conducive environment for work-life balance, especially during religious observances like Ramadan. By implementing remote work arrangements and optimizing working hours, the government aims to promote employee well-being and productivity while upholding its service delivery standards.

This initiative aligns with the emirate’s broader efforts to foster a supportive and inclusive work culture, emphasizing flexibility and adaptation to meet the evolving needs of its workforce. As Abu Dhabi continues to prioritize the welfare of its employees, initiatives like these underscore the government’s dedication to creating a conducive and empowering work environment for all.
