The new pandemic that has hit the world in recent months has caused great concern to everyone, especially on the very important issue of health but also, for many, on the issue of work. Various fields such as the arts and tourism have been hit hard, without anyone knowing what the outcome will be and when it will happen. However, in the midst of the crisis, some fields seem to be flourishing both globally and in Greece. Below we analyze how this came to be, by taking a positive approach to this difficult situation.
Big increase in online shopping
The growing tendency in e-commerce has been a global fact, even before the Covid-19 pandemic. It seems though, that since most citizens were forced to stay at home, there was an even greater impetus in online shopping, even in countries where it wasn’t as widespread, like Greece for example. This new reality has prompted consumers to become familiar with the idea, turning it into a habit that, as it turns out, will remain in their daily lives. Many supermarkets and pharmacies that did not do so before began offering home delivery services that ultimately contributed to their overall growth. In addition, it has greatly helped the older age group of consumers, as well as those with mobility difficulties.
Turn to technology professions
Although, unfortunately, many people feel insecure about their jobs due to the new pandemic, some fields are booming. According to researches, in recent months, professions such as software developing, IT administration, digital marketing, graphic design, IT support and many more in the technology department have become more sought after than ever before, showing in this way that the future lies online. Of course, that doesn’t come as a surprise, but this big growth tendency is certainly a new fact.
