The worldwide Lockdown and the current Lockdown in India, teach us how important is Online e-commerce businesses. Maintaining social distance and purchasing the day to day important items is not an easy task, that we have realized through these days. This is where, Online e-commerce plays an important role in pandemic situations like this. You can buy things without leaving home.
Anyway that is why we are not here today. Going through a blog of Amazon I found some thing useful and it provoke me to share this news here for you guys!
Vice President of Customer Fulfilment Operations, APAC, MENA & LATAM, Amazon, Mr Akhil Saxena states the following-
One thing we’ve learned from the COVID-19 pandemic is how important a role Amazon and eCommerce can play for our customers as much as for small businesses & the economy. We take this responsibility seriously, and we’re proud of the work our teams are doing to help small and other businesses deliver to our customers through this difficult time. We want to continue helping customers all over India get everything they need so they can continue to practice social distancing. To enable this, we are creating work opportunities for close to 50,000 seasonal associates across our fulfillment and delivery network. This will also keep as many people as possible working during this pandemic while providing a safe work environment for them
Even though Amazon is creating job opportunities it also keeps an eye on the safety measures of its associates, partners, employees, and customers. Sharing a video by Amazon India shows that safety comes first for them, the video showed how faces were covered of all associates, at the entrances temperature were checked for each of them, Plexiglas barriers were provided at the work station, protective gears provided for those in high traffic areas, how hand sanitizers were installed place to place, working by maintaining social distancing.
Taking safety first, Amazon India announced opening close to 50,000 seasonal roles to meet the surge in demand from people relying on Amazon’s service, particularly those most vulnerable to being out in public. This will be a variety of roles in their fulfillment centers and delivery networks including part-time flexible work opportunities as independent contractors with Amazon Flex.
The associates will join thousands of associates across Amazon India’s fulfilment and delivery network and assist them to pick, pack, ship and deliver customers’ orders placed for sellers more efficiently.
Those who are really interested to apply for these seasonal opportunities, they can call or send an email-
