Reduced carbon footprint of hybrid work

The pandemic has presented our world with many challenges, but also opportunities. In a time when we recognize the urgency of protecting our environment, how much consideration has ASU given toward maintaining remote work when possible in order to reduce our carbon footprint? Because the workplace fosters innovation, perhaps a hybrid work-from-home model might be best. Departments/teams would determine the best structure that allows some employees to work from home while others work on-site. Employees could work on-site 2-3 days per week and work remotely during the remaining days. A reduction in commuter travel provides a cost savings to the employee as well. Adopting a hybrid model addresses several categories: Sustainability, Work Life Balance, Parking and Transit, Health and Safety.

Is there being any thought given to hybrid work schedules in the return to campus plans? Unless the university is requiring vaccines, that could be a good option to lessen crowding on campus.

Suggestions for Speak up Be heard form

This program is a great idea. If we are looking to add new features, a +1 button could be considered to capture the topic in from the "speak up be heard" page (which was already asked/answered) and pulls that into this form so people can share comments related to topics already made. (Alternatively, the user could just reference the topic again when filling out this form, so maybe this feature idea is more convenience related than core functioning).
