If we take Samsung, it has had a lot of ups and downs as a company in 2020. However, every time, it woke up from the dust and improved. When the world got hit by Coronavirus, it quickly shut down its factories in South Korea after confirmed cases but soon scaled it back. As a Consumer Electronics company, it didn’t stop there. It opened a UV sanitizing service for its Galaxy series of Smartphones.

Showing concerns for both consumers and employees 

Similarly, in the semiconductor business, it was quick enough to shift the production from Korea to Vietnam to tackle the situation. Later, it smartly reduced the component orders by 50% when the scenario was a near-death sentence back then. Also, it contributed to countries like India by pledging nearly ₹20 crores($2.7 million) to the PM CARES fund and other state govt to combat the virus.

It even launched a new Smartwatch App for Galaxy Smartwatch users that remind them to wash their hands. Add to this, the other measures include UV sterilizer-cum-wireless Charger, anti-microbial smartphone cases, and a Coronavirus checkup center at the South Korean Plant.

And now, it is ready to expand the market even more but also ensure the safety of its future Smart home products with UV-LED technology. All these shows how much commitment Samsung is showing to its consumers, and employees. That said, 2020 is almost over and companies like Samsung are gearing up for a varied strategy in 2021 with well sorted out plans for TV business, smartphones, semiconductors, auxiliary components, and more.
