City Staff Ideas Challenge
#nycspeaks2022 Share your ideas for bold actions the Mayor should take
Allow NYC office workers to work remotely
COVID-19 showed what a powerful tool teleworking is for the resilience & wellbeing of NYC. Through it, NY continued working and providing services to our customers and stakeholders while strengthening local communities.
My proposal is to allow City office workers to telework three days a week.
Telework creates a workforce that allows NYC to meet any challenge. It is good for work-life balance & mental health, and reduces congestion on crowded subways.

Municipal employees already showed during the height of the pandemic that we can work successfully from home. Mayor Adam's supported this concept when he was seeking our Union votes 🗳 during the Democratic primary.
When we work at home 🏡 we support our local economies. We have to pivot as we are losing talent from all city agencies to the private sector. We can reduce our office footprint and repurpose those buildings to deal with the homeless crisis we have in NYC. We can consolidate field offices and make those offices we use in a neighborhood style office space where you come in only when we have to gather for certain office tasks. We need the outer borough Mayor to remember his promises to Union members and our families that he would support an alternative work schedule 📅. Promises Made in this area have NOT been kept!! We need a Mayor who is going to make the public sector competitive and flexible for those who choose to serve NYC.
