Wall Street Will Look Very Different When Workers Return

Citigroup Inc. Chief Executive Officer Michael Corbat told employees they can take an extra day off this Friday after working “harder than ever” in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a memo to staff, Corbat acknowledged many have been juggling workloads, home-schooling children, taking care of family members or even continuing to go into the office. Citigroup said last month that roughly 80% of its employees around the world are doing their jobs remotely.
