A common-sense hybrid-work policy to keep NYC lean, innovating, and competitive
We are a hardworking city of innovators, and leaders. Speaking on behalf of my fellow city workers, we have proven that we can be productive during the darkest days of the COVID-19 pandemic, so lets adopt a flexible approach.
A common sense hybrid work policy will restore equity, quality of life and respect to NYC’s dedicated civil servants. It will retain the amazing talent the city workforce has, even as many consider leaving for so many other opportunities that do offer telework.

I strongly agree that we need flexible telework options for city employees whose roles allow for it. COVID aside, giving back the commute time is a huge quality of life upgrade that would cost the city nothing. It would also allow greater flexibility for those with chronic illness, family/pet care needs, and just general life - how many times have people needed to take a day just to let a landlord in to fix something, when they could have just as easily been working at home during that time?
Aside from those benefits, we should also realize that many city offices are small, crowded, outdated, and do not actually have space to host regular meetings. Many office workers still take their meetings on Zoom because of this issue, which makes it even more confusing that we are asked to be at our desks each and every day to 'collaborate' when that mostly happens online.
