Virtual Event: Modernizing the Local Government Workplace

Achieving Back-Office Transformation to Create the Agile and Inclusive Workplace of the Future

Tuesday, May 4, 2021
Start: 9:00am PT / 12:00pm ET

Agenda Overview:

Municipalities face many challenges in catering to population growth and meeting the ever-changing needs of diverse communities. Has the rapid shift to remote work helped to speed up transformation in the workplace? As well, perhaps to take a necessary step back, how do we now define “workplace”?

Embracing and investing in technology to increase workplace productivity will help to enable sustainability around recent crisis-driven shifts to job sharing, flexible working hours, compressed working weeks, part-time work, and working from home. With hybrid workplace models looking like the way of the future, are local governments prepared to deliver on these expectations?

Public Sector Network’s Modernizing the Local Government Workplace Virtual Event will help showcase success stories and support senior leaders with key planning processes and strategies to ensure that workplaces are safe, productive, flexible, and modern.
