Citigroup CEO Jane Fraser told staff that she is banning internal video calls on Fridays. She is encouraging staff to set boundaries for a healthier work-life balance and instituting a firm-wide holiday called Citi Reset Day. This is as the pandemic fatigue takes a toll on employees.

According to CNCB, Fraser took over for predecessor Mike Corbat this month. She told staff of the changes in a memo sent Monday afternoon to her 210,000 employees around the world, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.
She also laid the framework for what work will look like at Citigroup. Citi is the third-biggest U.S. bank by assets, once more employees return to offices.
″The blurring of lines between home and work and the relentlessness of the pandemic workday have taken a toll on our well-being,” Fraser said in the memo. “It’s simply not sustainable. Since a return to any kind of new normal is still a few months away for many of us, we need to reset some of our working practices.”

Giving your reasons for leaving a job helps interviewers determine what satisfaction and engagement at work looks like to you. It can also shed light on what your long-term career plan is and what you want to get out of a new role.
1. More responsibility and better career growth. Wanting to develop your skills can be one. Give examples of the kinds of skills you want to build on and tangible ways you’d like to go about doing it.
2. A career change. A new direction professionally, to find interesting and meaningful work.
3. Company reorganization. It’s helpful to give some examples as to why the new structure isn’t working for you. And what you’ve done to try and improve things and what you’d change.
4. Better work-life balance. Try and focus on what you’re seeking for in the long term, whether it’s remote work, a four-day work week or flexible hours.
5. Relocation. Explain why you’re making the move.
Avoid launching into a barrage of complaints about your former workplace, colleagues or manager.
