Rumors Fly About Goldman Sachs Seeking To Hire A Cryptocurrency-Oriented Team In Near Future
Rumors Fly That Goldman Sachs Will Soon Be Hiring For A Crypto Team
With the news of JP Morgan and Facebook potentially entering the crypto atmosphere, it does not seem far-fetched to believe that other companies on the skirts of the space would do the same. Recently, Goldman Sachs put out a new policy with their dress code that will allow a more “welcoming” atmosphere for employees with greater flexibility. This adjustment has spurred some rumors that crypto employees will be added to the workplace.
The new dress code policy states that casual attire is clearly not optimal for every single day, but the company hopes that users will “exercise good judgment” in their choices. With the casual environments at workplaces becoming more popular, Goldman Sachs appears to be evolving with the times. Does that mean that they are preparing to attract one of the most popular fintech opportunities of the time?
As soon as the dress code was posted, analyst Joseph Young reposted an image of the memo on Twitter, adding that the company is preparing for crypto investors.
The memo clearly says that it is meant for internal use only and has absolutely no mention of cryptocurrency or blockchain personnel coming to their team. The only potential link to this rumor stems from a decision by the tech division in 2017 when the company was working to bring in new talent in fintech. So, if they are already abiding by policies that would bring in these developers and other workers, why the change?
Along with rumors of new employees, the firm has been allegedly losing many millennial staff members to cooler companies in the tech field. Considering that millennials make up 75% of the staff, Goldman Sachs clearly needs to retain them in any way possible. Still, this could just as easily be a result of having an EDM DJ as the new CEO that they welcomed last year.
