Citadel founder Ken Griffin said his employees are back to the office full time, advocating for an in-person approach because innovation and creativity can falter in a remote-work environment.

“Having everybody back together has been really powerful in driving forward our business,” the billionaire said in a wide-ranging interview Thursday at Bloomberg Intelligence’s Market Structure conference. He said people have told him “it’s nice to be in a room and not have to deal with 25 different distractions.”
