David Solomon, the CEO of Goldman Sachs, dropped a new single as part of his dance-music side project. The bank chief, who has been known to spin tunes under the name "DJ D-Sol," posted the song on his Instagram account on Friday.
It comes as employees prepare to return to the office on June 14. Sources told the New York Post that Soloman may be trying to send employees an underhand message with the title of the song: "Learn to Love Me."
A Goldman spokesperson told the outlet: "David enjoys producing music, and he is dedicated to giving back. All proceeds from his releases go to benefit charity, specifically those committed to the battle against addiction and those in need as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic."
In February, Solomon made clear that he wanted staff back in the office, as Insider's Reed Alexander reported. "This is not a new normal," Solomon said.
The company has come under fire in recent months after a leaked survey exposed conditions that were described as "inhumane." In the survey, 13 first-year analysts in the US described declining health, 100-hour work weeks, and a lack of sleep.
Bosses at Goldman sent snack boxes to London bankers in response to the survey. One employee told The Guardian that the bank should be doing more for the junior bankers who have to work grueling hours, however.
Insider's Anna Cooban and Kate Duffy recently reported that the investment bank was seeking to know how many employees have been vaccinated, per a memo first viewed by The New York Times' Dealbook newsletter. The bank gave staff a deadline of 12 p.m. Thursday to report their vaccination status.
The bank has made it mandatory for staff to submit their vaccination status on an app. According to the Times, it said it "strongly encourages" getting vaccinated, but said the choice "is a personal one."
