Bank of America outlines work-life balance measures

Hard Hat In Office Tray

Bank of America Merrill Lynch has detailed how it intends to improve working conditions for its junior bankers after one of its summer interns died.

In a memo sent to staff on Friday and seen by Reuters, Bank of America said an internal review had outlined measures to ensure such staff take days off and to improve support and supervision.

The review was announced after 21-year-old Moritz Erhardt died in August towards the end of a seven-week internship at the U.S. bank's investment division in London.

The new measures are designed to increase 'the efficient use of our time and resources, support work-life balance, increase our junior banker staffing levels and enhance the overall work experience', the memo said.
