Jes Staley expects his largely homebound bankers to return to their offices this year.

“I look forward to us being able to welcome colleagues back into the office -- that will certainly happen some time this year,” the Barclays Plc chief executive officer said on a call with journalists Thursday after the bank reported fourth-quarter results. “I think it will be good to get people working in the same location again.”
