12K Of This Giant's Employees Returned to the Office, But ...

A mutual fund industry titan has seen thousands of its employees return to the office. Yet most of those returnees are still working from home regularly, too, and the vast majority of their colleagues have not yet returned to the office.

At a recent virtual event, Abby Johnson, CEO of Fidelity Investements [profile], revealed that 12,000 out of the Boston Behemoth's 52,000 employees (i.e. 23 percent) have volunteered to work in-person at least part-time, the Boston Globe reports. As for a return-to-office timetable, that's still TBD, according to Johnson, though she reiterated the value of having teams together in-person.

"We're really trying to understand and observe," Johnson reportedly said at the virtual event, part of Boston Fintech Week. "Our core planning teams are working on this, developing a sense of what's the kind of work that best happens on site, and what's the kind of work that's very well done at home."
