Now that every day is casual Friday, Citigroup has a new way to TGIF: Zoom-free Fridays.
CEO Jane Fraser has asked that no video calls be scheduled on Fridays because they are taxing as hell – not her exact words. She said, “Since a return to any kind of new normal is still a few months away for many of us, we need to reset some of our working practices.”
Employees can still participate in Zoom calls with clients but internally, she is asking video calls not to be scheduled on Fridays. Fraser has also designated May 28 as a company holiday called “Citi Reset Day.”
