Seven Steps for Supporting Muslim Employees During Ramadan

Every year, Muslims in the U.S. and around the world observe the month of Ramadan, the 9th month of the Islamic lunar year. Those who are able, abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset for 29-30 days. For many, most of their fast on the weekdays is spent at the office and may require accommodations. ING offers recommendations to managers on how to support Muslim employees who observe Ramadan.
