As the worst days of the pandemic seem to be subsiding in the US, there's one ubiquitous question on everyone's mind: What does the return to work actually look like?
On Wall Street, the itch has been mounting since the start of the pandemic for people to find a way to safely get back to their desks.
At some firms, the return to work has gradually begun. But, for many others, the timeline has yet to kick off to move thousands of people back into New York City skyscrapers and offices across the country.
Insider Finance reporter Reed Alexander will moderate a live webinar event on Thursday, June 24, at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PST, in which three top financial-services execs will break down what the return to work looks like for Wall Street.
- Melissa Fridman, global head of human resources for the investment bank at Deutsche Bank, will explain how her firm is implementing a hybrid model.
- Kate Burke, chief operating officer at AllianceBernstein, will provide details on how the asset manager, which handles some $697 billion in assets, set up an internal Pandemic Response Team to shape the firm's return-to-office plans, and what their tiered return to work will look like.
- Michael Cheek, managing director in capital markets at the consulting firm Accenture, will take us inside the regulatory and compliance considerations that financial services firms like banks and asset managers are facing as they migrate big global teams back to work.
