Embracing remote work: A boot camp for Local Government

About the boot camp

COVID-19 has fundamentally changed the way people work – especially in government. Many offices still have some or all employees working from home, and it seems that some of the changes brought on by COVID-19 will have long-term impact.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Apolitical to bring you this free online email-based boot camp about best practices for working remotely in local government. You’ll get insights about how to develop your remote working skills, tailored specifically for the challenges facing public servants in local government.

What you'll get

  • Four 20-minute lessons delivered via email each week, with articles and bite-sized activities
  • Tips and tricks on how to effectively work remotely, from productivity to well being
  • Articles, case studies, worksheets, hands-on challenges and more
