Ramadan 2023 is likely to run this year from the evening of Wednesday 22nd March 2023 to the evening of Friday 21st April 2023.
Ramadan is a worldwide event observed by Muslims. The occasion represents the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and involves Muslims dedicating a month of fasting, prayer and reflection. This period will see Muslims making changes to their lifestyles and traditional daily routines in homage to this religious occasion. Despite some allowances such as ill health and pregnancy, Muslims are expected to refrain primarily from food and drink during daylight hours within the above period.
Ramadan may be celebrated by members of your team, which could see some changes to their life and behaviours in the workplace. Our senior HR advisor, Gary Foster, has created a comprehensive guide to Ramadan for employers.
