Solomon Sees Vaccine Bringing Goldman Staff Back by End of Year
(Bloomberg) — Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer David Solomon said he expects to have all his employees back at their offices by the end of the year as the vaccine rollout ramps up.
The Goldman CEO said he’s encouraged by the amount of vaccine production, but flexible, efficient ways need to be found to get shots distributed, which he believes will be the biggest challenge facing President-elect Joe Biden’s administration. In addition to government actions, the private sector can play a role in speeding up vaccinations, he said.
“There’s still work to be done,” he said. “And once we deal with the vaccine and the virus, and people feel safe, we’re still going to have to deal with the economic consequence of the shutdowns and the impact on our economy that this pandemic’s had.”
