David Solomon, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. CEO, provided his insights and warnings to remote workers from afar. He wants to make sure that you do not get too attached to working remote full time.

There is a strong desire to see their firm’s offices fill up again, he says. On Bloomberg, he states “This is not ideal for us and it’s not a new normal,” Solomon said at a Credit Suisse Group AG conference. “It’s an aberration that we are going to correct as quickly as possible.”

Solomon has been pushing government officials to move faster in having employees go back to work in office.

The goal for him is to make sure that the new class of young people do not arrive at Goldman Sachs in the summer remotely and that has been a high focus for the company. He would like the new class to get inducted into the Wall Street way from their office desk rather than being remote.

It is important for people working distantly from their offices to consider a potential plan to prepare for no longer working remote as the growing trend is that this may not last forever, and could potentially not be the new normal, as we all anticipated.

Although we believe it is inevitable that an increasing number of firms’ continue to promote working remotely compared to pre-covid; Solomon provides an interesting prospective going forward.  We shall see how many firms on wall street follow Goldman Sachs’ footsteps.
