I wonder if the House of Rep investigation into Porter Novelli’s HHS contract is a factor?

I’m curious on this one too. I feel like I’ve seen Ketchum hiring a lot lately, and with how difficult it is to get OPRG to approve a hire that wouldn’t happen if they’re consolidating?

I don’t think that will happen, I’ve heard senior leadership talk about how bad the BCW merger was and that they would not do it in the US and key markets as the brands are so important.

Long story short: I work for a small healthcare consulting firm. Since COVID, I was going to the office once a week, every Wednesday. Today, I have put on my 2 weeks because I accepted an offer from a big 4. During my last 2 weeks, I had planned to see my family for the first week, and go to the office on my final week. Also today, my boss asks me to come in the office everyday next week. Should I say I don’t feel comfortable and just don’t go?What’s the worst it happen? Get fired lol

I'm on an engagement and a manager jokingly told a new associate "you're fired" and the associate jokingly said back "f*** you". Do you think that was appropriate? Should that get held against her?

As opposed to forcing layoffs, could a firm just request their employees to go on sabbatical for reduced pay?

Regarding layoffs, would anyone accept a pay cut to keep their current position? I wonder if that’s a viable solution when you have to cut costs, but also want to keep reasonably talented people.

Just had to share this because I feel so thankful and I’m so proud of my brother for being on the frontline and supporting the noble initiative of making the Covid-19 testing available to the Native American Communities in Chicago. ❤️💙 Expanded from testing 18 patients to a 100 patients per day in 15days. Despite the shitty arrangements that has been made by the hospital for his accommodation and food, he has been working 18 hours a day for this cause. No politics or abuse please. Just sharing🙏
