The COVID-19 crisis has accelerated the shift from in-store to online shopping. Pandemic-wary shoppers are increasingly filling virtual carts instead of real ones. With the abrupt spike in online shopping, retailers must pivot quickly to remain competitive because as e-commerce sales grow, so do the number of brick-and-mortar store closures.

In today’s volatile business landscape, using talent acquisition technologies like eSkill’s pre-employment testing platform is the key to ensuring your human resources (HR) department can weather the storm.
