Conference Session

A Tale of Two Cities

Remote and hybrid work is now the norm for many employers – including at some municipalities. From permanent remote work, temporary “workcations”, and work from anywhere policies, the changed work environment opens up myriad possibilities – and risks – for municipalities. Adoption of these types of policies, for appropriately situated employees, offers municipalities the opportunity to recruit candidates from outside their local talent pool and to retain talent who are interested in combining their work and travels.

Join us to learn about the risks and benefits of the wide variety of remote work and the appropriate policies and steps to implement ‘work from anywhere’ policies. We will discuss best practices and practical tips for mitigating the risks of interjurisdictional work and the unique public relations considerations for municipal employers who choose to implement these policies.
