The NYS Forum is soliciting presentation submissions to be considered for the topic of Returning to the Workplace – The New Reality.  Submissions from both government and corporate membership are encouraged and welcome.   The deadline for submissions is August 14th, 2020.  All submissions will be reviewed upon receipt and, if accepted, scheduled accordingly.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic many government agencies asked staff to work from home; a huge change in the way state and local government typically operate. This has not only tested government leaders but it has transformed the way agencies are governed.  State and local government leaders are confronting new issues, behaviors, technologies, and regulations. The hybrid in office/remote workforce model represents a significant change from the traditional workplace. 

Now, as we start to recover from the disruption of COVID-19 the reality of returning to the workplace is here.  Government leaders are challenging the norm of on-site workers and are asking questions such as:

  • What will the new office look like?
  • Which roles can be performed remotely and which require a physical presence?
  • How can management support a hybrid work model (e.g., some working at home, others working remote)?
  • What technology is needed to support a hybrid workforce?
  • How does one decide who needs to be physically present in the workplace and who can work remotely?
  • What considerations must management take into account with regards to civil service rules and worker unions?
  • How are professional service firms approaching return to work and what are the potential take-aways for government?
  • What are the important considerations around the restart so that all issues for employees, technology, and customers are addressed?

This is an opportunity to reach a large audience of state and city government and corporate membership.  If interested please provide a summary of how you intend to address returning to the workplace.

All submissions should adhere to the Forum's long standing policy on vendor neutrality. Presentation content will be reviewed by members of The NYS Forum.
