Barclays denies claims that survey being used to boost morale

Barclays Canary Wharf

Barclays is denying claims that the bank's senior staff want employees to boost morale with a friendship survey.

City AM reports that the statement comes after a report this weekend that bankers at the firm will be asked to take part in a survey in the coming weeks which asks staff who their best friend at the firm is.

According to the Sunday Times, the friendship survey comes directly from chief executive Jes Staley, who wants to change the face of banking after criticising the moral culture of the profession last month.

The banking boss said: "A company that retains the loyalty of its employees solely based on compensation is a company that gambles with its institutional culture."
