JPMorgan Chase (JPMorgan) told all U.S. employees on May 27 that they must begin preparing to return to the office and plan to let employees into the company in batches starting in early July, the first major Wall Street bank to plan a detailed schedule for employees to return to the office.
In an internal letter signed by chief executive officer Jamie Dimon and other executives, the company said that all offices across the United States will be open to all employees from May 17 to help employees re-familiarize themselves with office life; however, the number of people open to each office will still be in line with federal guidelines and will only be open to 50%, so employees will be rotated into the office.
Smallmore said: “People may be happy to come back to work, but for some people, back to work is a change that needs to be managed.”
Although the vaccination will not be mandatory for those returning to work, employees are strongly encouraged to get the vaccination and the company will provide information and resources.
The firm is the first Wall Street bank to plan a detailed schedule for employees to return to work. Wells Fargo had previously said it tentatively planned to recall employees to the office in September.
