COVID-19 has resulted in millions of employees, including in government, working from home full time. While many may view this as a short-term response to a crisis, many employees will want to continue working from home, at least part-time. As a result, government needs to prepare for this upsurge in remote work. What lessons have we learned from this sudden transition in how and where we work, including about how to maintain the engagement of employees who work remotely? To answer this question, the Institute for Public Sector Employee Engagement developed the Employee Connection Survey to help government understand how to manage a remote workforce. In this webinar, Bob (the Institute Director) will share highlights from this survey, which was completed by more than 18,000 state and local government employees across the nation. The survey included questions on communication, tools and technology, employee well-being, workload and whether employees want to permanently continue to work remotely. Based on this and other research, Bob will also discuss how to maintain the engagement of employees working remotely.
