JPMorgan and Citi staff will start 2022 working from home

The Coronavirus pandemic is yet to be completely eliminated despite the presence of a vaccine.

JPMorgan Chase, one of the leading financial institutions in the world, has allowed its workers to work from home for the first two weeks of the year. However, the workers are expected to return to the office by February 1.

According to the company's memo, it is not changing the long-term plans of working from the office. The bank said;

"With the increase in holiday travel and gatherings, we are allowing for more flexibility during the first two weeks of January to work from home (if your role allows) at your manager's discretion."

Another major bank in the United States, Citi, has reportedly allowed its workers to start the new year working from home. The bank wants its workers to work for the first few weeks of 2022 at home as the country battles with the surge in Omicron cases.

Citi told its employees at the New York office earlier this month that they could work from home if they were able to through the holidays. The major banks in the United States are becoming more flexible with their working policies as the pandemic continues to affect various industries around the world.

The banks are encouraging their staff to resume office as soon as possible though the option of working from home remains on the table. The United States, like many other advanced countries around the world, has been struggling with the Coronavirus for the past two years.

The vaccine began to work, but the emergence of the Omicron variant made it tougher for some industries like banking and aviation to resume full operation. Regardless, most companies expect operations to fully resume over the coming months as the cases reduce and the number of vaccinated people increases.
