Muyiwa Adekeye Special Adviser to the Governor (Media & Communication) in a statement explained, that, for now, the state government would permit public servants to work from home for one day per week.

He explained that the measure became imperative to boost productivity, improve work-life balance and enable workers have more time for their families, for rest and for agriculture.

Muyiwa further noted that it would also assist to 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.

Muyiwa noted that as from December 1, 2021, the state government would begin the implementation of the transitional arrangements in the public service

He said ”with effect from December 1, 2021, working hours for public servants are adjusted to 8am-5pm, Monday to Friday.

It said the state government would also ramp up its efforts to give public servants access to digital devices and platforms to enable them work effectively from home.

He noted that all public servants, other than those in schools and healthcare facilities, would work from home on Fridays, as this will continue 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.

He said 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.

He added that the state government expects the required legal and regulatory framework to be in place by January 2022, to enable the organised private sector engage with the process and agree on a longer transition period to a four-day working week.

“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 statement further said
