Citigroup tells staff 'go away for two weeks' in burnout ultimatum

Citigroup has told its bankers to take a fortnight off as bosses attempt to improve working conditions for junior staff and to prevent staff burnout, The Times has reported.

The publication reports that this is said to effect junior bankers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
