Jobs boost as recruiting back to pre-Covid levels

Job recruitment has returned to pre-pandemic levels with hiring intentions at an eight-year high as the economy recovers from the easing of restrictions.

All sectors are experiencing a recovery in jobs and an improvement in pay prospects, a quarterly report by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development has found.

There is employer optimism across the private, public and voluntary sectors. It extends to industries including retail and hospitality, parts of the economy that have been most exposed to the crisis.

Employment intentions are at their highest since February 2013 when Britain was emerging from the recession of the global financial crisis.

The encouraging outlook comes amid the latest easing of Covid rules today, with pubs, bars, cafés and restaurants allowed to serve customers indoors, and with the latest official jobs figures due tomorrow.

Warren Buffett recently described the American healthcare system as a “tapeworm in the American economy.” Berkshire Hathaway, JPMorgan Chase and Amazon formed Haven to disrupt the healthcare industry — which is 17 percent of GDP — and, as Buffett put it, “the tapeworm won.”

One might assume that since three of the largest and most successful companies in the country couldn’t create a more efficient healthcare system, it can’t be done. The truth is that Haven made some key missteps, which now highlight the path for entrepreneurs who want to create a more affordable and accessible healthcare system.

Staffing snafu

Celebrity chef Rick Stein struggles to hire staff at restaurants due to shortage of EU workers and people refusing to return from furlough

Celebrity chefs Rick Stein and Michael Caines are among hospitality bosses struggling to hire enough staff as the country’s lockdown is eased.

A combination of housing shortages, absence of international staff and workers not returning from furlough have been blamed for the problems.

On Monday, indoor dining can resume – marking the most significant milestone to date for businesses in England.

But restaurants, hotels and pub owners are now facing skyrocketing demand coupled with fewer workers.

Jobs lost in hospitality account for 43 per cent of the national total during the coronavirus crisis, with many staff who lost employment moving into retail – and others heading back to their home countries in Europe.

As restaurants open back up for a roaring summer trade, bosses have started to feel the shortfall.

Currys hangs up on Carphone Warehouse with retailer rebrand

The Carphone Warehouse brand is set to vanish from the high street after Dixons Carphone changes the name of all its shops to Currys.

The electricals group plans to rebrand its retailers, including Currys PC World, Team Knowhow and Dixons Carphone, in the UK and Ireland under the single name.

A new Currys website will be launched as the name appears on more than 300 shops, 13,000 staff uniforms and 300 delivery vehicles, the FTSE 250 group said.

Carphone Warehouse was co-founded in 1989 by Sir Charles Dunstone and Julian Brownlie, who put £6,000 into the company from their savings. In 1990 Dunstone brought in his school friend David Ross, a chartered accountant, who became chief operating officer.

The company name subsequently engendered jokes in the City that the group did not comprise warehouses and did not sell car phones.
