Tele Work Made Permenant
NYC employees showed that they can be productive at home during this pandemic.
Employees who are basically back office , with no interaction with the public should be allowed to continue working from home.
Safety is low, moral is low, and an economic contribution can also be made in our own neighborhoods.

Telework is much more convenient and time saving. Telework will make more productive outcome because commute destroy the energy and time.
I agree! As someone that worked 100% remotely and under a hybrid model, I support this 100%. We should be allowed to work remotely at least 1 to 2 days a week. We are more efficient when we have better work-life balance. The pandemic showed us just how much time is wasted traveling to work. We spend hours in our workplaces and not much time with our families and loved ones. Let's set up better balance for our health, happiness, and work efficiency's sake.
Yes. Our bodies are a multi - faceted being. we need to re-charge. Everyone does even the boss. It may help make people more friendlier, able to be pliable having more consideration for others. It would give and not take away. Wed find out how effective we really could be. wouldnt that be beautiful. You could be a better person, husband, wife etc. by getting rid of the stressors related to just the travel alone. In order to be a blessing to someone else we must put stock in ourselves. It could be a better way of living life, and living it longer is a real possibility. Why not give it a try it hurts no one.
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. Mayor Adams and City Council needs to get on board and support this teleworking idea. Ask and you may receive, so let’s keep putting the pressure on our elected representatives.
I agree. with working home. It saves money on both sides. The employers bottom line is larger in many ways. They do not have 2 have air-conditioners running, toilet paper, light bulbs so we can c. We- the employee dot have 2 spend car fare, buy gas, new clothes waste hours of rides 2 the workplace & back home. All of as sudden you've found extra money 2 add 2 your family. Maybe now u could remodel the kitchen. Employees may be more rested 2 the no traveling. It may give some sort of health benefit, no more travel stress. Some may not need babysitters anymore. We need 2 start think about the benefits. Life is short. Nearly every 1 I know who has retired has died within a year. Body was not able 2 handle the sudden couch potato. We need 2 take a look at other countries who live this model and the pros vs. the cons. I know that ppl working from home work longer & R more productive. I cud tlk abt this all day. Its a no brainer. this may not b 4 u but its 4 some 1. wrk smarter not harder.
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.
I AGREE. ALL WE WOULD NEED WOULD BE LAPTOPS, NOT IPADS!!!
I am absolutley in favor of flexibility for hybrid or full remote for staff that don't need to interact with the public. At least let us do 2 days remote p/week or more ideally, one-two full weeks in-office and the rest remote. Since coming back to the office full-time, I am not spending any more money locally since I now make and bring my lunch. But when were coming in part-time I would "splurge" on those days and go out to eat.
I'll submit this as an idea, if not already suggested. But the City should identify flexible offices in communities, like We Work, that City staff could work from. There could be more economic balancing and benefits for the communities.
I would endorse this 100%! i think the city should consider a more flexible policy that allows staff to create a schedule that works for their families and the need of the office. Finding a balance is key to retain great staff and compete with for-profit world.
The current administration repeatedly states that they want to prioritize results and efficiency. So why aren't we reevaluating city employee working arrangements to accommodate a hybrid model? A recent NY Times article shows that only 8% work full-time on-site. NYC has employed the most extraordinary public-sector workforce globally, and we should innovate contemporary solutions instead of propping up the current working model since its status quo.
Thank you very much for sharing such a useful article. Will definitely saved and revisit your site ( percetakan jakarta timur & percetakan rawamangun )
