Financial services and trading firm BTIG said it now expects its employees to remain working from home for the rest of the year, as its U.S. offices will remain closed. BTIG said it has originally targeted September for its employees to return to office, but has decided to push that back until there is more clarity around risks surrounding the transmission of COVID-19 posed by indoor environments, and how to provide a safe work environment. The privately held firm said remote work will continue to play a prominent role in the culture at BTIG. "There is no need for any immediate return to the office in any of our U.S. locations," said Chief Operating Officer Jennifer Mermel. "Our staff is secure in their positions, business is operating without disruption, and client feedback has been strong. When the indicators change, BTIG will respond accordingly."
