Goldman Sachs obliges its employees to get permission to travel to Paris during the Olympic Games 2024


Bloomberg reports that Goldman Sachs, a U.S. investment bank, has mandated that its staff get special authorization from the management before they can travel to Paris for the Olympic Games, which are scheduled to take place from July 24 to August 14.

The organization notes that a lot of companies engage with prospective customers during the Games and other large-scale events. Occasionally, staff members utilize these gatherings as a pretext to pay for their own attendance at competitions.

The bank stated, "As in past Olympics, we have asked our people to manage expenses effectively... during the Paris Games," in response to the agency's question about the order. 

According to the Paris Tourism Board, the Olympics and Paralympics could bring in an extra 15 million visitors to the French capital.
