As India went under lockdown during a pandemic, jobs became scarce and people, skeptical. There was one industry, though, that started preparing for a massive demand surge.
E-commerce companies were gearing up to onboard thousands and they had to do it in a socially distanced world. The onboarding process became completely remote and was done over live video calls.
Samir Ghosh from Kolkata was one of the thousands looking for a job opportunity to support his family during an economic downturn. He signed up to be a Delivery Partner with one of the world’s top e-commerce company and shared his experience via his YouTube channel.
In the video, Samir talks about the onboarding process including background verification and training. His onboarding was complete within a week of application and he has since started earning by delivering packages.
“Online training was the highlight for me. I didn’t need to leave my house and could complete it at my convenience.”
Like Samir, thousands of workers found a ray of hope in e-commerce companies. More than 100,000 Delivery Partners were onboarded during the pre-festive season, providing livelihood for them and their families.
