COVID-19 Impact

The online recruitment market growth was affected by the COVID-19 crisis due to the unrivalled demand-supply chain disruption and turbulent production process caused by the pandemic. The ultimate aim of the government is to minimize physical contact of maximum people to curb the spread. This is estimated to fuel demand for online services such as e-commerce platforms for groceries and essentials, similarly, online recruitment portals for job hunting. However, due to the giant companies facing massive losses during the pandemic, they are laying off employees to manage cost cutting. For instance, as per a report by the World Bank, the world economy has observed severe contraction leading to an economic decline of 5.2%.
