Rahm Emanuel said, “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Last year brought discussions of campus closures, telelearning, and teleworking. Within a week, these discussions were reality. When the awareness that this COVID thing would last longer than a few weeks, we started to look at how the lull could be used to keep the momentum of teleworking going as a demand-reduction tool.

To address all the issues for making teleworking an ongoing mobility strategy, we created a telework committee. Stakeholders from human resources, technology, safety and ergonomics, employee/union relations, communications, and finance. Transportation Services coordinates the committee, which will address the physical, legal, supervisory, and training issues and keep teleworking a viable mobility option into the future.

Attendees will:

  • Illustrate how teleworking is a mobility advantage.
  • Recognize the institutional needs of a teleworking program.
  • Detail best practices and measure the effectiveness of amnesty and relief programs for constituents and revenue recovery efforts.

When the Old Script Doesn’t Work: Customer Experience and the NEXT Normal

Cindy Campbell

As our organizations adjust to the ongoing challenges of a global pandemic, so too must our approach to customers and our changing relationship with them. Service delivery has been significantly affected as we respond to the multitude of changes in how we conduct business. Consider this: In the scramble to respond, has your organization invested time and attention to retooling your team’s attitudes and understanding of the customer experience? Are we as empathetic as we might be? As a team, are we recognizing the ongoing shift in what we do and how we do it?

There’s a long road ahead of us, but it doesn’t have to be daunting. This session will focus on actions and attitudes intended to better align our approach with the needs of the customer and to encourage our teams to better anticipate the change continuum in our services.
