In addition to learning how to complete new tasks and take on more responsibilities, the professional employed trainers or coaches will also guide participants or entrepreneurs to learn advanced techniques to help them complete everyday tasks more efficiently. The “BHIM SKILLS” training program will also allow the less endowed to strengthen those skills they are vulnerable to and also increase the self-employment rate.
The coronavirus outbreak led to companies across the globe temporarily downsizing operations and also making employees work from home. Amidst this, several jobs were lost in companies that were struggling to spruce up revenues or had to completely suspend business in sectors like hospitality, aviation and travel/tourism.
