Samsung India begins 'Work From Home' internship virtually amid lockdown
Samsung India has come up with a unique solution for its internship programme wherein 36 GenZ students from B-schools across India have joined the workforce online amid the coronavirus lockdown.
The interns got inducted into the team virtually, given the focus on remote working and social distancing.
The HR and IT teams worked round-the-clock to provide corporate coordinates and software solutions, so that it would be BAU (Business as Usual) for the interns.
To make the induction exciting, Samsung India’s leadership team joined in via video conferencing to put the new interns at ease.
"I would call this batch of interns one of the luckiest because the first lesson that they have been taught is that with technology and innovation, everything is possible. They have joined Samsung in our endeavour to make remote working and social distancing a success," said Sameer Wadhawan, Head of Human Resources at Samsung India.
“Anxiety to excitement! It was my first #WorkFromHome experience and I had doubts regarding how the entire process would work. But I ended up getting reassured and a nice overview of Samsung,” stated Silpa PS from XLRI, Jamshedpur.
All interns are required to start work on their projects immediately. To help them, Samsung has provided each intern with a buddy, guide and mentor.
“It’s an unusual experience to be an e-buddy. It’s a challenging time, and we all need to pitch in to make this wonderful programme, a success,” said Riddhi Ranjan, Insights and Innovation, e-Com Team at Samsung India.
