RIL implements five-day week policy to retain top staff
Reliance Industries (RIL) has implemented five-day work weeks from the earlier six days, as the oil-to-telecom conglomerate aims to retain senior and overseas executives and synchronises HR policies with those of partner BP Plc. However, the weekly working hours remain unchanged at 45, as staff will now have to put in nine hours a day, instead of 7.5 when they worked Monday to Saturday. RIL staff will now work from 9.30 am to 6.30 pm, or suitable times on manufacturing sites depending on shift requirements. The five-day week has been effected for staff across all group companies, said Chief Human Resources Officer Prabir Jha.
