Barclays: We want our people back in the office ND
BBC News, July 29, 2020

Barclays wants employees working from home as a result of the pandemic, and to return to the office over a period of time, according to the company’s Chief Executive, Jes Staley. 60,000 Barclays staff were working from home, with another 20,000 working in offices, branches and call centres. However, not all banks are taking the same approach, with NatWest telling more than 50,000 of its staff that they could continue to work from home until next year. "We want our people back together, to make sure we ensure the evolution of our culture and our controls, and I think that will happen over time," says Mr Staley. Staley's comments reflect government plans to encourage more people to return to their workplaces from next month, as part of what Prime Minister Boris Johnson hopes will be a "significant return to normality" by Christmas.
