We hope this message finds you well - taking good care of yourselves, loved ones, and your teams - especially those impacted by the wildfires in our county and throughout the Bay Area. We have weathered a great deal this year, and we wish you strength and resilience as you continue to adjust to new ways of working, schooling, and living - hopefully taking stock of things to be grateful for as well.
Below you can find information on the upcoming September Bike to Wherever Days (2020's modification to what was Bike to Work Day) - as well as the latest info on which of our shuttle routes are currently operating on regular or reduced service, and those that have been suspended.
Thanks again to those of you who participated in last week’s Roadmap to Telework webinar

Even though we can’t begin “live experimentation” of long-term telework in pandemic conditions, you can start lining up the many ways you'd want to integrate telework into your long-term day-to-day operations, having conversations, and seeing which resonate amongst your teams. Here are some takeaways of what you can begin now:
Be the champions that make the case for telework to your decision-makers and culture keepers. (Yes, self-appoint and find allies.)
Have the conversations to air out all the “sticking points” and find alignment amongst managers on the various situations telework applies or does not, and to whom, and to what degree.
Start/continue the calculations on cost-benefit.
Kate highlighted that telework is merely one doorway to gain better understanding on what defines your operations and culture - how the parts of your organization that are compatible with telework will also impact other areas that do not telework, and vice versa. As we continue planning further offerings on telework, do not hesitate to reach out with your ongoing questions and comments. We look forward to hearing from you!
