Although many bankers thought they would work from home through the summer, a number of banks are calling their employees back to the office, The New York Times reported.
JP Morgan Chase will open its offices on May 17 to voluntary workers and will require a return, in rotations, in July. Goldman Sachs told workers to plan to be back in the office by June 14 in the U.S. and June 21 in the U.K.
In addition, Citigroup will have about 30 percent of its North American workers in the office by the end of the summer. Bank of America expects a return after Labor Day and Wells Fargo predicts a return on Sept. 6.
JPMorgan Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon was elated in announcing the news, The Wall Street Journal reported.
“I’m about to cancel all my Zoom meetings,” he was cited as saying.
