The changing world of workAs many businesses continue to struggle, one area where we are seeing business very much as usal is the world of ecommerce.
Many of our customers are seeing extremely high levels of demand for their products which leads in turn to increasing numbers of staff required to fulfil orders.
To compete today, companies need to be able to respond instantly to orders and many warehouses are seeing huge volumes of work being undertaken as Christmas approaches and, before that, the demands of Black Friday are met. Pickers, packers, despatch operatives and returns staff are working around the clock to fulfil the delivery promises that are so essential in today's world.
The extent to which shoppers will return to the high street, following the end of lockdown is uncertain but what seems absolutely assured is that ecommerce will continue at breakneck speed as we head to the end of a traumatic year.
