As the world prepares to emerge from the lockdown imposed to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, businesses are still struggling to recover from its after-effects. The lockdown led to a massive economic disruption with hundreds of businesses forced to shut, and the continued safety measures have made remote working and digital operations the new normal. As a result, businesses will now have to make a rapid transition from offline to online, which requires a completely new approach to business strategy. In the post-pandemic world, services that relied heavily or entirely on customer mobility have been the worst-hit. Transportation services like Uber, fitness centers, and the tourism industry, for instance, have taken heavy losses and – in many cases – have permanently closed operations. Other businesses have been compelled to reduce their workforce, give up their physical office addresses and restrict client interactions to digital conversations. Watch the Webinar A Google meet Webinar on “BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT & OPPORTUNITIES IN THE PANDEMIC” was arranged on 17th August 2020 at 6 pm onwards by the Department of Commerce (Morning Section), The Bhawanipur Education Society College, in collaboration with IQAC.
