The majority of MENA professionals (79.1%) plan to spend more time looking for a new job during Ramadan, according to the new “Ramadan in the Middle East and North Africa Workplace” poll, carried out by Bayt.com.
One of the prime reasons for this might be the fact that 49.6% agree with as well- Ramadan helps people to slow down their distractions and also allows them to focus on their career goals. In addition, more than half of the respondents believe that companies’ hiring activity during the holy month either increases or remains the same.
While less than three in 10 respondents claim that their workload increases during the holy month, the majority(72%) agree that workload decreases or remains the same during Ramadan to match their energy level and work hours.
