Remote work in governments: challenges and opportunities

The Blavatnik School of Government’s People in Government Lab (PeopleGov) will welcome Tsedal Neeley, Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School, and Henna Khan, Head of the UK’s Civil Service Human Resources Strategy and Innovation Unit, for a conversation about remote and flexible work inside governments with Margarita Gómez, Executive Director of the People in Government Lab.

Remote work has been increasingly adopted by governments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This organisational change imposed new challenges on the public sector, but also presented a breadth of different perspectives for the future. In this conversation, we discuss the challenges and opportunities that this new work arrangement brings for governments, and the actions that have already been implemented by governments around the world.
