Banking company Citigroup has informed employees they will need proof of vaccination before coming back into the office.
This effort aims to help bring more workers into Citigroup’s corporate offices in Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C.
According to Sara Wechter, Head of Human Resources at Citigroup, employees will be expected to return to the office at least two days a week and that vaccines will be required in order to enter their buildings.
“These are our plans as of today, and I assure you if the facts change, we will too,” said Wechter.
This move makes the company an outlier from other U.S. banks. For instance, JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs have encouraged workers to get the vaccine, but have not yet required it.
However, Morgan Stanley requested back in June that their employees who plan to return to New York headquarters will need to be vaccinated.
