Goldman Sachs Chairman & Chief Executive Officer David M. Solomon has sent out a motivational audio message to the employees of the financial firm, according to Business Insider. The audio message details how the financial firm is handling the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

Last week, Goldman Sachs hosted a call that discussed the testing procedures and treatment options for COVID-19. And Solomon explained the importance of employees taking care of themselves and not burn out at the same time.

Solomon said that he went for a two-hour ride on his road bike on Sunday. “It may seem small, but it made a significant difference on how impactful I could be afterwards,” said Solomon about this activity via Business Insider.

This Thursday, Goldman Sachs is planning to have a company-wide town hall to provide more information.

Solomon pointed out that as of Friday, about 80% of Goldman Sachs employees were working from home.

Solomon said that the company was still helping clients with work like “restructuring margin loans and increasing requests for capital.”

Before sending out the audio message, Solomon spoke with President and COO John Waldron and Chief Financial Officer Stephen Scherr multiple times that day.

“This is a marathon and it requires all of us to make choices and try to prioritize,” Solomon commented.
