Wednesday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Wednesday’s business headlines.

Taco Bell

Taco Bell is boosting benefits as a labor shortage hampers recovery efforts.

Taco Bell announced plans Tuesday to hire 5,000 employees on April 21 at some 2,000 Taco Bells across the country.

It’s having trouble attracting managers even thought the jobless rate is low.

Now the managers will be offered four weeks of annual vacation, eight weeks of paid maternity leave and four weeks of new parent and guardian “baby bonding.”

Remote work

A new study by global staffing firm Robert Half shows that about 1 in 3 professionals currently working from home due to the pandemic would look for a new job if required to be in the office full time.

Nearly half of all employees surveyed said they prefer a hybrid work arrangement, where they can divide time between the office and another location.

Facebook

Facebook said that massive leak stems from an issue in 2019, which has since been fixed. Still, there’s no clawing back that data.

A third-party website, HaveIbeenPwned.com, makes it simple to check by inputting your email. For now, it just checks if your email was among those stolen.

Although 533 million Facebook accounts were included in the breach, only 25 million of those included emails in the stolen data.

JetBlue

JetBlue says it will offer live sports streaming on transatlantic flights.

It’s also boosting food and other amenities on overseas travel.

Free high-speed Wifi will be available for the entire journey across the Atlantic.
