Compressed Working Week (CWW)

TAQA offers onshore employees and contractors a Compressed Working Week (CWW) in order to help achieve a healthy work-life balance.  The CWW is an arrangement where employees and contractors work a standard two-week work period (10 days) over a compressed period of 9 working days i.e. employees contracted to work 37.5 hours per week will work 75 hours over 9 days (instead of 10 days). The 10th day in the second week of the CWW period is known as 'Flex Friday', a non-working day.

The aim is to deliver business results, whilst supporting a work/life balance and promoting a positive culture that supports engagement and retention.   Individuals can establish their own working pattern with their line manager to accommodate business requirements and personal preferences within an agreed framework.
