Don’t Waste: The Future of Hospitality

New report available to help businesses navigate industry-wide skills challenges and protect the future of our sector

The growing labour shortage is threatening the future of this vibrant industry. At any one time there are 100,000 hospitality vacancies, which can be partly attributed to outdated perceptions of the industry and it being seen as a “stop gap”.

This lack of understanding about what careers in hospitality can offer in terms of progression, satisfaction and reward, has resulted in a number of barriers preventing new talent from entering the industry.

To help hospitality businesses maximise recruitment and retention opportunities available and attract the next generation of hospitality stars, HIT Training has developed the report Don’t Waste: The Future of Hospitality.

The report offers in-depth research and insight into the current challenges faced by the sector, along with practical tips and advice from hospitality leaders on how businesses can attract different talent pools to future-proof the sector.
