While Jamie Dimon is fine with the greater flexibility allowed by employees working from home part time, that’s no substitute for being at the office, the JPMorgan chief said.
JPMorgan Chase chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon is no advocate of the new remote work structure that has taken hold during the coronavirus pandemic.
Dimon has already told his U.S. employees they should begin getting used to returning this month with the goal of having 50% of workers attending offices by July. While he’s fine with the greater flexibility allowed by employees working from home part time, he said Tuesday that it’s no substitute for being at the office.
“We want people back to work, and my view is that sometime in September, October it will look just like it did before,” Dimon said at The Wall Street Journal CEO Council. “And everyone is going to be happy with it, and yes, the commute, you know people don’t like commuting, but so what.”
