Written by SOT.COM.AL 21 Shtator 2023
A salaried employee in Albania worked an average of 43.7 hours per week in 2022, from 43.3 hours the previous year, according to data made public by INSTAT. Other Euostat data, which measure working hours for European countries and some other countries in the region, reveal that Albanian employees have the longest working hours in Europe, along with other countries in the region.
According to Eurostat, a European worked an average of 37.5 hours per week in 2022, or 6.2 hours less (almost one working day), than an Albanian. After Albanians, Serbs work longer with 43.3 hours. For North Macedonia, the last data available are for 2020, where the average was 40.9 hours.
According to Eurostat, in 2022, the average working week for people aged 20-64 in the EU was 37.5 hours. Eurostat points out that significant differences are evident between EU countries. The longest working weeks were recorded in Greece (41.0 hours), Poland (40.4), Romania and Bulgaria (40.2 both). In contrast, the Netherlands had the shortest working week (33.2 hours), followed by Germany (35.3) and Denmark (35.4).
Women in Albania work 7.8 hours more than in the European Union
In Albania, according to INSTAT, men work an average of 44.8 working hours per week and women 42.5 hours.
The highest difference between working hours between employees in Albania and those in the European Union is among women. Women in Europe seem to be more privileged than those in Albania, as they work fewer hours and therefore have more free time to deal with families and children.
Women in the European Union work an average of 34.7 hours per week, according to Eurostat. According to INSTAT, in Albania women work 42.5 hours a week, or 7.8 hours more than in the European Union. In Germany, women work only 31.2 hours a week, while in the Netherlands, which has the lowest level in Europe, the working week lasts only 28.5 hours.
