A New Dream: Zong Brings Flexible Timings for Employees During Ramadan

In pursuance of the goals envisaged in ‘A New Dream’, Zong has introduced Flexi Counter for Ramadan for providing best possible working environment to its employees through highly flexible and convenient timings.

The employees have to complete only 28 working hours during the week. The Core Business Hours shall be from 10:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. from Monday till Thursday and from 10:00 a.m. till 01:00 p.m. on Friday.

After these timings, the employees have the option to adjust the remaining hours the way they deem fit to complete the 28-hour cycle.

Zong’s Director Human Resources , Mr. Wang Chunting said the policy aimed at best serving the employees in the otherwise hectic month of Ramadan .” This effort shall empower employees to effectively manage their time during this holy month by enjoying the luxury of flexi hours that is best suited to their requirements,” he said.

The Flexi Counter for Ramadan implies that the employees can choose to come to office at any time, while ensuring presence during the Core Business Hours. All employees, both permanent and contractual, are eligible. However, those working in shifts or at Customers Service Centres (CSCs) shall follow the advice of their respective heads of departments.

  • We already have flexi timing here at PTCL from last year, BTW Ramadan timings are 9AM-3PM for 28 hours per week as friday timings are 9AM-1PM. We can also use 10Am-4PM timeline as well.

    • Ptcl employees lol ? when do Ptcl employees really work . all are nikhatuu/Kaamchor/sifarshi and the list continues…
      RAheel Shareef Sir please we need a Zara e Azab on Ptcl

  • Telenor gives its employees full authority to set their own office timings and complete 32 working hours. Thanks Telenor :)

  • No one is really willing to come again to office and burn extra fuel and face traffic… instead they will just sit for extra 2 hours …

  • Can’t believe such companies exist in Pakistan. but anyways, My company is the winner among all. 8am to 4.30pm with half hour prayer break. Blastic work in progress!!!! :-S

    • ROFL here in muscat oman our timing first 15 days just 5 hours including 30 MIN break plus 40 min mini breaks which we can take max 10min each :D

  • My company is winning, 9:00AM to 5:30PM :P, Mon-Fri, no exception on work :P:P :P

      • Islam does not give you the right to claim lesser workload just because it is Ramadan. You must earn your salary without fail. Your sarcasm is unfounded and deplorable.

        • He did not ask for anything. Islam teaches you to be sincere towards others. Where’s the sincerity when the owner wants his employees to work for so many hours (yes, we have culturally accepted long working hours as moral, but where is the sincerity?!)

        • Bhai mere, Nabi Pak salal laho alehe waalehi wasalam ne khud irshad farmaya hai ke jisne apne matehat se Ramzan main thoda kaam lia Allah Pak uske gunnah bhi baksh dega aur use jahanum ki aag se azadi bhi ata farmaega. SubhanAllah!

  • I am government teacher. So bhai 3 month ki chutiyan chal rahi hain :) pur sakoon ramzan :)

  • Most Muslims in non-Muslim countries have to work the same schedule in this month that htey have to in the other 11 months. They’re not complaining so I don’t understand why people here are looking forward to reduced work hours or odd timings in this month.

    You want Pakistan to succeed? Do something about your work ethics.

    • @shahidsaleem:disqus Except that we have people here working for so many extra hours, and people being underpaid. I know it’s a really general statement, but people here do have to work under harsh conditions without getting the payment that they deserve (if you think that this is not true, then why would people even leave Pakistan?). Those people who are not living in Pakistan are not complaining because, in other regions of the world, the working hours are made with some sincerity, the working condition is fine and they actually get paid for what they deserve. That’s the reason why Muslims won’t complain about working hours due to Ramadan in other countries. Over here, people even complain about other 11 months. It’s just that in Ramadan, the people get more frustrated and want some relief at least for this month.
      Moreover, what is it with wanting ‘Pakistan’ to succeed. I just don’t understand how working for 10+ hours will bring ‘success’. Where success, somehow, is defined as a term sitting somewhere else outside of human experience, and therefore alien to human comfort. ‘Success’ can only be achieved if we have some sort of an idea of what is it that we call ‘successful’. Working for 10+ hours and dying the next day just to make a piece of territory called ‘Pakistan’ successful is stupidity at best, because success is a state in which human life is comfortable, and that can only happen if we look towards that comfort, not exclude it.

      • — if you think that this is not true, then why would people even leave Pakistan?

        Because there aren’t enough good jobs in Pakistan, pure and simple. We create more college graduates than we create jobs.

        — Moreover, what is it with wanting ‘Pakistan’ to succeed. I just don’t understand how working for 10+ hours will bring ‘success’.

        Then you must not believe in your job, or company, or product, or whatever. It’s just a “day job” for you. Look at your computer you are typong on, you think it and the technology inside it was made by 9-5 workers?

        Maybe you should look at success stories of Asian Tigers, the ones who learned from us in the 1960s but we fell behind after 65 war. Look at the average effort they spent in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s to get their countries where they are. 9-5 jobs? I think not, my friend.

  • Telenor also offered flexi hours last week…something employees loved and keeping the flag high as employee centric company. Bravooo TP.

  • Mine are 8:30AM (Grace period of half an hour till 9a.m). to 3:00PM

  • Good initiative by ZONG management and we hope that this should also be offer in normal working days

  • Excellent initiative, Best one so far regarding flexi timings in the industry..beat that telcos..! :)

  • These flexi timings of zong is a big advantage to the employee.
    My office timings are 8:30-3:30
    and on Fridays 8:30-1:00

  • Lol, My duty hours are 07:00 To 13:00, it is also a Chinese Company, and one of the best renowned for HR

  • Its an awsome initiative by Zong HR…… Flexi Working hours will definitely improve employee productivity

  • good initiative….though we enjoy flexi hrs in our daily routine other than ramdan as well….long live TP – setting trends

  • good initiative……Telenor offers flexi working hrs for quite some time i mean years :) we to go boys…….TP -setting trends

  • Tricky schedule. zong’s staff have to spend more time in office as compare to others Telecom’s staff.

  • Good for Zong employees but I think these flexible hours can’t work when you are working a team where a lot of things depends on others and results can be achieved better when you have a full team on board.

  • I think I’m the only one having hectic timing here, 10:30 – 6:00 PM with almost 0.75 hrs of prayer break!!
