Chinese Flashcard: The 1065 Working Hour System

Recently, a group of numbers '1065' are mentioned on the Chinese Internet and social platforms. It refers to a new '1065' working hour system practiced in Tencent WeChat Business Group, that required the employees to work from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm, five days a week, and two days for a weekend. You can read it as 1065 工作制 (1065 gōng zuò zhì) in Standard Chinese.

在近期的中国,一组数字 “1065” 指向的是中国腾讯微信事业群正在试运行的一种最新工作制,即早上10点上班,晚上6点下班,一周工作五天,周末双休。

Compared with various work schedules implemented in China before, the new '1065' working hour system is trying to push the time to start working to 10:00 am to avoid the heavy traffic in the early morning and also reduce the time wasted in commuting. For those employees who have a necessary demand to work overtime, they would be notified to leave the office no later than 10:00 pm at night.

与过去各种工作时间不同的在于,这次将上班时间调整到早上 10 点,避开上班早高峰期,一定程度避免在通勤上浪费太多时间。而对于有必要加班需求的组员,将以通知的方式要求在晚上 10 点下班。

As far as it's reported, the '1065' working hour system has already been carried out as a test schedule since the 2022 Chinese New Year celebration in some WeChat business groups in China.

据悉,这种“1065”工作制从 2022 年中国新年过后已开始在腾讯微信内部试运行。

Furthermore, a series of similar work systems have already been performed in some Chinese Internet companies since the last year. For example, the similar 1075 requires employees to work from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, the 965 asks for a five-day work weekly from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, and even a 3+2 mixed work system pushes employees to work at home two days a week. If compared to the outdated 996 working hour system, the above adjustments of work schedules seem to bring some positive improvements to the Internet companies in China.

与此同时,在中国还有其他多家互联网公司也在实行与 1065 工作制类似的工作时间制度,如 1075 工作制、965 工作制、3+2 的混合办公制等等,较以往互联网企业中屡见不鲜的 996 工作制而言,显得相对宽松。
