Building Resilient Business Models
Businesses suffered when retail managers refused to cooperate with marketing managers who wanted to support sales managers because they were struggling to meet their sales targets and consumers were feeling insecure about their health and unsafe to touch products or groceries. Simultaneously, many people had no opportunity to even speak to their loved ones before they left for heavenly abode. Due to various reasons like this, COVID-19 had serious implications on emotional, social and economic health of individuals at personal and/or commercial front. To address the crisis, scientists started working on finding cures and vaccination, while governments globally made best efforts to implement safety measures with policies like social distancing, use of masks and hand washing along with shopping hours for senior citizens to control and minimize the damage. Simultaneously, businesses that had moral obligation to keep their supplies up and running during the most challenging time like food factories, retail outlets and logistics providers were struggling to manage safety of their staff and customers together. Even after almost six months of eruption of pandemic, one of the major challenge companies are facing is to deal with continuing evolution of the situation. The major concerns of businesses during this time has been adapting to the situation, particularly related to the supply chain because it needs individuals to travel to deliver when every person wants to stay at home for feeling safe. During this time, when health workers were reporting shortage of oxygen cylinders and testing equipment, the crippled supply chains were struggling with geopolitical issues like origin of virus amidst slogans of not only saving lives and livelihoods, but also Black Lives Matter movements of civil disobedience.
