BREAKING: Kaduna Govt. innovates, introduces four-day working week

173
Workers, political appointees in state civil service to work from home on Fridays
The Kaduna State Government on Monday announced a major reform in the state civil service as it innovated a new operating system.
Persecondnews.com reports that beginning from December 1, 2021, Kaduna State will commence the transition to a four-day working week, that is, Monday to Thursday.
Working hours for public servants hours have been adjusted to 8.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday while they work from home on Fridays.
Mr Muyiwa Adekeye, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Media and Communication, said in a statement that the measure was designed to help boost productivity, improve work-life balance and enable workers to have more time for their families, for rest and for agriculture.
The statement titled, “KDSG Begins Transition To Four-day Working Week From 1st December 2021”, was given to Persecondnews.
“Kaduna State Government will begin implementation of the transitional arrangements in the public service of the state from 1st December 2021.
“From that date, working hours for public servants hours are adjusted to 8am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

 

“However, all public servants, other than those in schools and healthcare facilities, will work from home on Fridays.

 

“The measure also reflects lessons learnt from managing the Covid-19 pandemic which required significant relaxations of old working traditions and the ascendance of virtual and remote working arrangements,” the government explained.

It adds:”This interim working arrangement will subsist until the government is ready to move to the next stage of the transition which will culminate in the four-day week across all MDAs in the state.
“Senior officials are working on detailed guidelines to ensure that the emergency services and the education and health systems in the state continue to deliver services 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the transition and beyond.
“The government will also ramp up its efforts to give public servants access to digital devices and platforms to enable them work effectively from home.

 

“Given the significant investments the state government is making in ICT, it will ensure that most of its automated services deliver the levels of performance required to give citizens seamless access.

 

“The state government expects the required legal and regulatory framework to be in place by January 2022.

“This will also enable the organised private sector to engage with the process and agree a longer transition period to a four-day working week.”
