Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain: As part of its efforts to be in line with best practice to provide an appropriate work-life balance, the Central Bank of Bahrain (“CBB”) announced the implementation of a Work from Home policy for its employees, with a focus on working mothers in order to ensure suitable working conditions for continuity of its operations.

The “Working from Home Policy and Guidelines” has been developed by CBB with the aim of ensuring the proper application of remote work systems and providing a supportive, stimulating and appropriate work environment for employees in general, and for working mothers in particular to achieve a balance between their work duties and family commitments, while ensuring the continuity of business and enhancing productivity.

The policy includes the scope of remote work application, eligibility criteria, and obligations of both the employee and supervisor in this regard.

On this occasion, Mr. Yousef Rashid Al-Fadhel, Executive Director of Corporate Services at CBB said: “The development of this policy is in line with the aspirations of the CBB to provide a suitable work environment for its employees in general and for working mothers in particular, and to benefit from their capabilities and enhancing their status. This policy serves as a reference for organizing remote employees' work in a way that offers an appropriate environment for continuity of business."

It is worth noting that as part of its policy to assist working mothers and offer them suitable and healthy environment to perform their duties, the CBB has provided a dedicated nursing room for mothers at its headquarters and has urged the financial sector to provide such arrangements for female employees, emphasizing that supporting Bahraini working women is a national duty.
