    Working for companies owned by well-heeled private-equity firms can mean lower wages for employees

    Alma Jordan, a certified nursing assistant at the Marcella Center nursing home in Burlington, New Jersey, respected the residents she cared for there over the past 16 years. They were like family, she said, and she believes they’ve appreciated her attentiveness, especially during Covid-19. Not so, the nursing home’s new owner, Jordan said. After Complete Care Management, the largest for-profit nursing home operator in New Jersey, took over the 150-bed Marcella Center in April, it slashed worker benefits, she and other employees as well as a representative from their union told NBC News.

    Accounting firms slowly return to offices while giving employees flexibility

    Accounting firms, like many businesses, are reopening their doors as the COVID-19 pandemic recedes thanks to wide availability of vaccines in the U.S., but they’re trying to avoid alienating staff. Firms have been welcoming back employees who have been working from home for over a year, but giving them options to keep working remotely, if they choose, to avoid losing talented staff and partners to the competition. While a year ago, companies were laying off millions of employees due to the economic fallout from the pandemic, the situation has reversed and businesses in many industries are having trouble finding qualified

    Accounting firms must help to stem tide of graduate unemployment

    The detrimental impact of the pandemic and successive lockdowns on the labour market are well documented. Just as with the 2008 financial crisis the most pronounced effects are upon young adults looking to embark on their careers. A report last year into social mobility by the Sutton Trust found that 49 percent of small and medium sized businesses and 29 percent of larger ones, including in the accountancy and professional services sector, cancelled all student work experience.
