UK Finance employees have the option of flexible working on a permanent basis


The UK Finance lobby group told employees they would be allowed to have a flexible working model on a permanent basis.

Around 200 staff will have a choice of days they wish to come and will only be required to travel to the City of London for certain meetings, it is understood. The decision will not affect the size of his office, which is located in the heart of the city.

The Square Mile lay largely empty for a year as banks and other financial firms switched to remote work. The move is the latest indication that office life will not return to pre-pandemic standards, even as some banks are pushing for more staff to return.

Barclays chief executive Jes Staley said he expects his largely home-confined bankers to return to their offices this year, mirroring calls from Goldman Sachs’ David Solomon for a return to the venue. of work. Others take the perspective of hybrid work. With the end of UK lockdowns in sight, Deutsche Bank is now considering letting UK staff work from home one to three days a week.

Standard Life Aberdeen expects workers to spend as much time at home and redesign offices to meet these demands, the fund manager said this month. The Telegraph reported the move earlier. -Bloomberg
