The old saying goes, "Work is what we do, not where we are." Today, that saying is more accurate than ever, as the COVID-19 pandemic made telecommuting the norm for office workers everywhere, and for hundreds of thousands of public sector workers.

While the swift transition certainly had its growing pains, now, many in government are adjusting to the “new normal” that is telework. But simply staying up and running is never the goal. A true workplace thrives, innovates and pushes the envelope. And as the COVID-19 crisis continues, it’s more important than ever for agencies to collaborate effectively, securely, and easily, without encountering tech or process roadblocks that can pinch productivity.

So, how can agency leaders effectively navigate the waters of the teleworking world, shooting the rapids of security, productivity and collaboration? This is exactly the question our host Constance Sayers, president of Government Executive Media Group, explored with Kelsey Nelson, Product Marketing Manager at Okta, on this episode of Industry Insights, a podcast series for government leaders by industry leaders, brought to you by Carahsoft and Okta.
