Collaborative spaces, hot desks, and hybrid work models: Fintech firms gear up for work in a post-pandemic world

With COVID vaccinations underway across the U.S., many firms are now implementing strategies to start bringing their employees back into the office. PwC’s December 2020 Remote Work Survey found that over 70% of U.S. employers in financial services believe employees should be at the office at least three days a week to maintain a distinctive work culture.

JPMorgan Chase plans to organize in-person internships for hundreds of interns in June. Some teams are already back in the New York office. Goldman Sachs hopes to have its employees back in offices by this summer, and Morgan Stanley plans to bring all of its employees back into the office as soon as it’s safe to do so.

For a lot of fintech companies, though, this doesn’t mean a return to pre-pandemic work life. Many, including firms such as Klarna, Wise and Revolut, are coming up with hybrid models that aim to foster in-person collaboration while also retaining the flexibility offered by remote work.
