TD Doesn’t See Any One Moment for Return to Work After Covid-19

(Bloomberg) -- Toronto-Dominion Bank’s plan to bring employees back to the office following the coronavirus pandemic will involve many steps and be dependent on government directives in each market where the lender operates, according to its head of human resources.

“We want to support and in no way add to the burdens of governments and health-care authorities,” Kenn Lalonde, executive vice president of human resources, said in an internal memo Friday. “There won’t be a ‘moment,’ but many moments, many steps, with countless variables by business, geography, function and job role as we adjust how and where we work.”

The Toronto-based lender, which has a U.S. retail-banking network stretching from Maine to Florida, aims to expand its “working teams, dig deeper into the specific areas and businesses of the bank, and build plans that are both thoughtful and disciplined” to protect employees, Lalonde said.
