The catastrophe of COVID-19 pandemic had a radical impact on the world. It spared no industrial sector causing crippled economies, hampering countless businesses followed by indiscriminate layoffs and unemployment.

This hostile environment gulped several major and minor corporate houses keeping the jobs of many at stake. Seasoned as well as novice employees were in a dilemma about the future causing a situation of uncertainty and insecurity.

Amidst this chaotic situation, it was only the H.R. professionals who buffered the strain with their proficiency and indomitable spirit. The H.R. warriors across the globe assessed the situation accurately and handled it efficiently by establishing an equilibrium between the employers and employees. They steered the industry through the turmoil and strived tirelessly to restore it to normal.

Indira Group is proud to be associated with many such distinguished H.R. professionals from prominent corporate houses. They along with Indira Corporate Relation Cell handled the pandemic situation commendably without revoking a single appointment letter of our students. They instilled hope and reassured the students about the promising future.
