JPMorgan, Citi offer remote work options as COVID cases surge

American multinational investment banks JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. are offering the option of working from home in the first few weeks of 2022 to their employees as New York experiences the latest surge of COVID-19 infections.

In a memo by JPMorgan, the banking giant said there is no change in their long-term office plans. However, they are allowing more flexibility during the first two weeks of January as travel and gatherings increased during the holidays.

The company added that employees are expected to resume their in-office schedules by February 1.
