A recent study conducted by the HR Ministry has proposed 2 days weekend 40 working hours in a week in the private sector.
According to the study, it will make the private sector more attractive for the skillful labor and professionals.
The study was carried out in line with a new labor market strategy approved by the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Development last month.
The HR Ministry is confident that the new strategy will bring radical reforms in both public and private sectors in the labor market.
How likely is it going to be implemented?
While most multinational companies have already implemented this policy, the Ministry will face resistance from medium and small size companies. In my opinion, it is not going to be implemented soon across the country.
