Four-day work week to be implemented in select government offices in Metro Manila
They are hoping this will make Manila traffic less hellish.
In an attempt to decongest the roads of Metro Manila, the Civil Service Commission has approved the motion to implement a four-day work week for some government employees.
According to a report by the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Friday (September 26), the arrangement requires participating offices to have a "one-stop shop and its frontline services accessible through the Internet." A skeletal staff must also be present to take calls for any inquiries the office might receive.
The shortened work week also means longer hours for employees, who would have to work from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. from either Tuesday to Friday or Monday to Thursday.
A list of participating agencies will be posted on the CSC website and on www.gov.ph.
