2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

On April 15, the Massachusetts Municipal Human Resources association and the Massachusetts Municipal Management Association will co-host a free virtual meeting examining the future of work and what it will look like in municipal government.

The pandemic has dramatically changed what the municipal workplace looked like over the past year. With the “new normal” finally on the horizon, what does the future of work look like?

Rebecca Ryan, founder of NEXT Generation Consulting, will provide some concrete tools to anticipate and plan for an uncertain future.

Ryan is a futurist, author and entrepreneur who has held residencies at the Alliance for Innovation, the Governing Institute, and the Association of Governmental Risk Pools. She is the board chair and faculty member at the Institute for Zen Leadership. Ryan helps people figure out what’s next so they can be ready for the future.

There will also be a discussion about policies and initiatives that have been developed in the towns of Franklin and Lexington to adapt to the changing dynamics of the municipal workplace.

The meeting will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m., and advance registration is required. An email with the registration link has been sent to all MMHR and MMMA members.
