How Companies Can Support Employees during Ramadan
Ramadan Mubarak to all!
In Ramadan 2019 lets do things differently. Ramadan is not just about fasting from dawn to dusk but it is a great opportunity to improve ourselves in every manner. Ramadan in Pakistan is very difficult with more than 12 hours of fast in summers, fast coupled with work can be extremely draining and result in low performance in the office area, therefore as an employer you can do few things that can help your employees. This holy month, display your appreciation for your workers by supporting them; the smallest gesture can make a huge difference.
1-Provide a Proper Prayer Area:
The Companions of the Prophet (P.B.U.H) used to prepare for Ramadan fasting six months in advance. 0 It’s disappointing to see that some working places do not provide their employees with prayer area therefore the fasting employees have to find a mosque in the scorching heat. You don’t want your employee to feel undervalued by not providing his/her basic needs during the fast. Since Ramadan is about fasting, praying and making Ramadan Dua, offices should have a proper prayer area. A clean room with praying mats and recitation material is all that is necessary.
2-Limit the Number of Seminars, Training Events, and Outside Meetings:
It’s extremely tiring to attend seminars and training events on an empty stomach and dehydrated. Limit the outside office meetings, since your employees will not be giving their best on said activities. It is advisable to keep the meetings to a minimum; you can rather encourage teams to map out an effective work schedule so that they never miss a deadline. Ramadan is a month of religious observation, arranging several training events will not benefit the company or employees.
Get into the spirit of Ramadan by giving out Iftar boxes to unsung heroes of your company. This is truly one of the best ways of showing your appreciation towards the people who are holding your organization together. It could be just the simplest menu but the thought of this Ramadan gesture is grand. So do invest in Iftar boxes and Iftar deals coupons for your employees, its meaningful ideas like that which increases the enthusiasm of workers.If you are looking for affordable quality Iftar boxes this Ramadan, visit and get your orders in today.
4- Allow Employees to Work From Home:
Letting your employees work from home can be more productive than you think, this way they are in a comfortable environment where they can get a lot more work done. A survey by American Psychological Association under the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Program showed that employees who feel more valued by their employer are 60% more likely to report feeling motivated to do their very best for their employer. Therefore, allowing them to work in their comfort zone is only going to increase the employee’s motivation to do more during Ramadan period.
5-Arrange a Volunteer Iftar Distribution:
Encourage your employees to give back, organize an Iftar distribution campaign. This will create positive company culture. Your employees will learn to work with one another, induce motivation and team spirit. They will have something to look forward to, gaining good deeds is important for every Muslim in Ramadan, this way your employees can gain their deeds while promoting your company’s reputation. Create a hash tag and social media awareness. Set up a food camp and have your workers distribute Iftar in Karachi.

6-Invest in a Nap Room:
Maybe not a startup but big companies should consider adding a nap room for Ramadan, since your staff is fasting and won’t need a lunch break, you could allow that one hour for a power nap. A quite clean carpeted room is sufficient. There’s nothing worse than being at your desk, fasting and sleep deprived. Short naps can help them regain energy and refresh them for further work. Ramadan is all about understanding and caring, your devotion during this month will create yearlong dedication of your employees towards your company. Your employees will be proud to be a part of your organization.
7-Organize Iftar+Dinner Party:
Host an Iftar Party in Ramadan to get into the Ramadan spirit, this is the best time for your colleagues to interact and socialize from different teams. An annual event brings all the colleagues and staff members together under one roof, this will help to reinforce the values of Ramadan within your company. You would want your employee to always praise the culture of your company and this does it.
