World news – « It’s best to work in person, » says Goldman Sachs, CEO

0

NEW YORK, New York: Goldman Sachs wants its nearly 40,000 employees around the world, who have been working from home since the beginning of the pandemic, to return to their offices by the summer, said the group’s CEO David Solomon, known at a global town hall meeting on Thursday on Zoom.

Solomon himself worked from Goldman’s Manhattan headquarters during most of the pandemic, increasing pressure on employees to return to the office.

In India, many of the bank’s 10,000 or so employees are returning from their hometowns to offices in Bengaluru and Mumbai, while in London traders, investment bankers and others can be tested for COVID-19 at booths around the building.

« You ask people to come back, but they still don’t force people, « said a staffer, as quoted in Reuters.

 » By mid-April, I think the pressure would be too strong to resist. They say : ‘She should Try to come back and see if you like the office atmosphere and then decide for yourself. ‘ »

Leslie Shribman, Goldman spokeswoman, stated that » the safety of our employees is our number one priority « . « We are still working on plans to get our employees back to the office safely, and those plans will vary from department to department and from country to country. » We will remain flexible as we monitor evolving government policies and the uneven global adoption of vaccines, « reported Reuters.

Solomon felt the bank owed it to its incoming class of analysts and interns to get them back into offices with fellow bank employees, if only for part of the summer. « Getting her into the office is the best way to connect her to Goldman Sachs, » Solomon said during the meeting in New York. There are some difficulties with this move, however, as fewer than 20 percent of people in the United States have received a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, so employees are worried about getting infected on the way to or from work.

Solomon agreed that it would be a challenge until « more of us are vaccinated, » saying, « Based on the current vaccination rate and where we hope to be by the summer, guess. » Let’s practice that we are well positioned and there is a good chance we can achieve this goal, « quoted Reuters.

 » Our employees do their best when they forge close relationships with their colleagues, « said Solomon. « We’ve found that the best way is to work together in person on a regular basis. »
