Dubai: The Dubai Executive Council has approved part-time jobs as an optional system in all government bodies with the aim of increasing productivity and meeting the needs of employees who cannot balance between their jobs and social life.
The system is aimed at creating an attractive work environment for those who cannot work for long hours, apart from increasing productivity and enhancing Dubai's economic competitiveness.
"The part-time system, which reflects the leadership's vision in line with the Dubai strategic plan 2015, will help increase productivity and improve the social conditions of workers," Ahmad Bin Byat, Secretary-General of the Dubai Executive Council, said.
History of success
Nasser Al Shamsi, Assistant Secretary-General of the Council for Government Sector Development, said the system has proved to be a success in several developed countries.
Under the system the appointment and transfer of employees from the full time system to part-time jobs will be considered in accordance with the requirements of each government body.
All departments have been asked to determine their need for part-time employees, he added.
Al Shamsi noted that it will be applied to all UAE citizens in various posts and with different job degrees.
