5 million salaried jobs lost in July
100 million migrant workers left jobless
Over 18 million Indian’s lost jobs since April

To avoid further mass job losses, there is a need for reform in India’s education and labour market, creating new economic opportunities.

New solutions that encompass multiple communications channels, ensuring business continuity can help educators, professionals and employers navigate the complex landscape of education and employment.

Skilled workers who belong to the informal sectors are unemployed and countless jobs are increasingly at risk.

To ensure business continuity, we need to embrace new solutions that encompass multiple communications channels and open new employment possibilities.
