Ryder presenting at a conference.Tripepi Smith President Ryder Todd Smith, along with California JPIA’s Employment Practices Manager Kelly Trainer Policky, will be discussing the work-from-home model at the California Contract Cities Association’s (CCCA) 2021 Fall Educational Summit on September 18 at 10:20 AM.

“The pandemic has forced organizations to adapt and learn how to meet business needs with a remote workforce,” said Ryder. “Tripepi Smith has successfully implemented a remote work environment since 2015, and I look forward to sharing with attendees my experiences with the benefits and drawbacks of the work-from-home model in a local government context.”

The panel will focus on the big picture issues and opportunities that work-from-home has created for public agencies and will inform city council members about the pros and cons of the remote model while working to achieve community goals. Throughout the session, Ryder will reflect on his experiences managing Tripepi Smith’s growing team and touching on some of the key legal and management challenges that come with the remote model.

“Having a decentralized workforce can be challenging at times, but the work-from-home structure also provides enormous flexibility and cost-saving opportunities. The remote model has never been a barrier to Tripepi Smith delivering high-quality services for our clients,” continued Ryder. “That being said, work-from-home is not a panacea, and agencies benefit from carefully considering the impacts and changed management strategies to address this new employee paradigm.”
