We have seen that the coronavirus pandemic has hit everyone hard and it is a fact that e-commerce is surging right now because of the panic buying and shopping spree. However, it is also a fact that e-commerce companies like Amazon have been hit by this virus and due to that reason, they also have low employees and staff to work with. Due to that reason, you would see that people who were not seen working at Amazon will also have to take some responsibility during this time of crisis.
On that topic, we have a new report which reveals that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has had to take reins of the Amazon day-to-day business in his own hands once again. This is possibly because Bezos wants to take more control of the logistics side of the business as the things are not going as planned. Also, it is possible that many of the higher-level employees are taking leaves which is why the CEO has to work himself.
While Jeff Bezos was not managing Amazon’s business on a daily basis, he is known to have diverted attention to moonshot projects like his Blue Origin rocket company. But that has been kept on hold now as e-commerce has become top priority for the company and its CEO. Also reported is that Jeff Bezos started “taking daily calls including on weekends with executives during the peak of the crisis in March to discuss Amazon’s strategy and response”
It is also said that during the calls, it was discussed “how and when — down to the minute — Amazon” would respond to the crisis. An Amazon spokesperson also confirmed this report saying that Bezos who is the world’s richest man is “incredibly focused on this and is participating in, and driving, [Amazon’s] leadership meetings,” daily
