Bloomberg providing $75/day to staff as they return to office
Bloomberg is providing a $75-per-day stipend to its workers as they start returning to the office.
The stipend is to help pay for items such as care services, tolls, parking or public transportation. Anything above $75 per day will be considered personal costs.
“We’re excited to offer this additional benefit, which will help those coming back select the commuting option with which they’re most comfortable,” said Ken Cooper, head of human resources at Bloomberg, in an email to staff.
Bloomberg News has approximately 2,700 journalists worldwide. In the United States, its main newsroom is in New York but it also has major newsrooms in Washington and San Francisco.
“We’ve been taking many steps to prepare our offices for our employees’ return, including enhancing our ventilation systems and cleaning procedures, as well as implementing social distancing and mask wearing protocols,” said Cooper in the email.
