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 want to echo everyone else’s previous sentiments. The city is working within the prism of an outdated system. Implementing an innovative and flexible work from home schedule would greatly improve the work life balance of city employees. If the city remains antiquated, they will continue to lose tremendous talent over to the private sector making it harder to continually attract the next generation of workers. Since March 2020, city employees have shown that they could be both efficient and productive without entering an office 5 times a week. A flexible work from home option will: 1) decrease COVID spreading within the office making the offices much more spacious and safer, 2) eliminate stressful, long commutes to and from work, and 3) increase personal enjoyment and fulfilment in employees current job roles. On January 12th, 2022, The NY State Assembly in Albany introduced bill (A.457) which is called the NYC Telework Expansion bill. This is a step in the right direction.
