The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the workforce nationwide. Hundreds of thousands of workers were suddenly unemployed or working remotely. Trends affecting the nature of work previously forecast to come to fruition years into the future—such as widespread remote work—have come to the forefront of policy discussions within a few months. The traditional pipeline from school and training into the workforce has also been disrupted. As educators, businesses, and policymakers begin planning for the recovery they must consider how work and employment in the state will change and how those workers displaced by the pandemic can be best prepared to take advantage of the recovery.
Join us for this webinar that brings together experts and practitioners to discuss which workers have been impacted and how they will re-enter the workforce, how workforce developers are positioning themselves to meet the needs of workers, and how New York is mobilizing its infrastructure to prepare for employment recovery.
Public Sector Management Following the COVID-19 Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 public health emergency began five months ago, state and local governments across the United States have rapidly adopted new policies and adapted their operations to support a state and local workforce that is able to work remotely and deliver essential services to constituents virtually. This ongoing virtualization of both work and services has changed the landscape of the public sector. At a time when the demand for effective government has never been more apparent, it is critical for public sector managers to understand this dynamic landscape in order to reimagine it, ensuring stability and productivity within the workforce, as well as attracting and retaining the people who make government work. In New York, state and local agencies and authorities have developed new management approaches, leveraged telecommuting options, deployed public health and safety precautions for in-person work, and identified key opportunities to improve resiliency and ensure continuity of their operations during the “new normal.”
This webinar features public sector professionals from New York discussing their response to the emergency to better understand the management challenges and opportunities as the state and localities continue to recover from this unprecedented crisis and prepare for the future.
