Work from home
Companies have gone out of their ways to not only tackle this growing health crisis but also to keep their business going. Almost all the companies are operating from home. They are using video platforms like Skype and Zoom to keep in touch with their employees throughout these trying times.
Some of the companies are still churning out profits. Streaming companies like Netflix, Hotstar, Amazon Prime and more are releasing a variety of shows to keep their audiences engaged. This spike in their demand has increased their profit.
Although some companies have stopped their recruitment until the end of April/May, others are taking the help of virtual gadgets like WhatsApp, Skype, Hangout and more to stay in touch with the candidates. Many of these companies are using AMCAT score to shortlist candidates for the next round of the hiring process.
