Ford to Cut 1,000 North America Salaried Jobs Amid Overhaul

(Bloomberg) — Ford Motor Co. is preparing to trim about 1,000 salaried jobs in North America, looking to its home market for savings as part of an $11 billion global restructuring begun two years ago as it projects an operating loss this year.

The job cuts are aimed at improving the automaker’s efficiency and are not related to rising costs from the coronavirus pandemic, said people familiar with the action on Monday who asked not to be identified revealing internal plans. An announcement could come as early as this week, the people said.

Ford is in the midst of a sweeping reorganization as it seeks to reverse declining fortunes and achieve what Chief Executive Officer Jim Hackett calls financial “fitness.” The company expects to report a full-year operating loss for the first time in a decade.

Last year, Ford closed plants and eliminated thousands of jobs in Europe, where it

UK finance jobs revival halted by coronavirus

The COVID-19 pandemic killed a tentative revival in the City of London jobs market, new data shows.

Recruiter Morgan McKinley said on Monday that the number of new listings for financial services jobs in London rose by 8% in the first three months of 2020 compared to the final three months of 2019.

Job listings surged 97% in January, after Boris Johnson’s decisive election victory spurred optimism about a resolution to Brexit. Listings continued to grow in February but sank 38% in March as the novel coronavirus brought the UK economy to a halt.

“Out of the frying pan and into the fire,” said Hakan Enver, managing director at Morgan McKinley UK. “We barely got to take a breath between Brexit and this new global crisis.

“London came back in the new year, with a renewed optimism, which was reflective in the general mood of employees and employers alike. Soon

Job security fears major reason for low housing demand

New Delhi: With widespread layoffs and pay cuts across sectors, concerns regarding job security and wage reduction have emerged as a major deterrent for prospective home buyers from making the deal and buying an apartment of their own, according to a survey by JLL.

The survey on home buyers’ preference amid COVID-19 shows that in the current fragile employment scenario and an atmosphere of subdued economic sentiment, survival becomes the priority.

“Homebuyers are either anxious about job security or anticipating salary cuts, which resulted in consumer sentiments taking a massive hit,” said the report.

It noted that prospective buyers are also expecting further drop in house prices.

The report says that there is increased pent-up demand in the market, but this will translate into higher sales only when the economy stabilises and prospective buyers feel secure about their jobs.

According to Homebuyer Preference Survey, 91 per cent respondents wanted to

Late in the evening of March 5, Prashant Kumar took an unexpected call from his boss at State Bank of India. He was offered the job of rescuing the country’s most troubled private-sector bank, and — if he accepted — told to report for work at 8 a.m. the following morning.

“The first thing that came to my mind was where was the address,” he recalled. “I had to Google it.”

Kumar had little hesitation in accepting the position of chief executive officer of Yes Bank Ltd., the lender that was teetering on the edge of insolvency before being bailed out that month at a cost of $1.3 billion. The only concern came from his wife, who Kumar says was “shocked” that he had resigned from his safe post at the government-controlled SBI, where he was chief financial officer.
