Manulife Financial Corp. is suspending a plan to return its employees to offices on Jan. 24 amid rising Covid-19 case counts and concerns about the omicron variant.

The life insurer and asset manager will give workers 30-days notice when it sets a new date for a widespread return to office, Chief Executive Officer Roy Gori said in a memo to staff. The company’s Jan. 24 return plan was announced less than a month ago.
