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 The city is working within the prism of an outdated system.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. The city is losing tremendous talent over to the private sector. Work from home is the way for the city 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 days a week. COVID spreading within the office could decrease because employees are not working on top of one another making the offices much more spacious and safer. Commuting to and from work an hour or more along with increasing high crimes in NYC (specifically in NYC subway system) is very stressful and taking a huge mental toll on many. Providing flexible work from home options for city workers will increase personal enjoyment and fulfilment in their current job roles.
