COVID-19 has “exposed clear decision making problems faced by the government and organizations” as stated by Berger [1], this is a very powerful statement which is applicable to all major organizations around the world. Several developed countries around Europe and America have been severely hit by the pandemic resulting in staff furloughs, high rates of unemployment leading to financial and fiscal crisis. However, evidence suggests that there are certain jobs which have an increased demand after the pandemic [4].
