Banking Briefing: Will WFH become a thing of the past?

Covid made work from home a standard practice within most industries, banking included. But as the world continues to tip-toe back into routine, many companies are either demanding their employees to return to the office, or, at the very least, firmly suggesting so.

And banks seem to be leading these back-to-office vibes, with an average attendance of 47%, according to recent research from Advanced Workplace Associates.
