Title: Beam Me Up – Telecommuting and County Government
Description: Telecommuting, or allowing employees to work in offices located off-site and within employees’ homes, is becoming more popular. Workplace flexibility is a way to entice employees into county employment, improve business continuity, create cost-savings, and increase eco-friendliness. Telecommuting also poses risks and downsides, including lack of oversight, security concerns, fairness and morale among employees, and loss of on-site brainstorming. This session will explore the most effective telecommuting policies for county government performance and employee satisfaction.
