Teleworking can save NYC money
Make telework an option for positions where teleworking works. Working from home can reduce the city budget for office space, office equipment, office supplies, insurance, utilities and many more. Teleworking should be seriously considered as a way for NYC to save money while NYC has such a large amount debt. Mass transit is terrible, it shouldnt take someone the same amount of time to get around NYC on mass transit than it takes to drive to the outskirts Pennsylvania or Connecticut.

I partially agree with your analysis. I believe the agencies have to take accountability with providing employees w/ the right equipment and resources to do their jobs effectively and accurately whether its at home or at work. I worked at DOC a hand full of years ago doing the same work and some issues will transfer no matter the situation.
However the overwhelming majority of city employees depending on their role/title were able to effectively work from home and do the "same thing they were doing in the office". If its a matter of poor management or leadership of staff that's a knock on the supervisors and managers. A hybrid model and a 4 day workweek would be the best combination for those who want to be in the office, but don't see value in 5 day commute. For hybrid, some roles/titles don't need face to face interaction everyday or a 4 day commute, so maybe 3 days in office is suffice. Where I currently work there was structure in telework but some agencies don't have guidance
