Employees are the most important part of any business and for a wide range of reason it’s never been more difficult to fill roles and retain staff within the hospitality sector than it is right now. The pandemic caused many experienced hospitality professionals to look for work in other industries and Brexit has exacerbated these issues by reducing the pool of talent in the UK even further.

Finding the right people
The number of available roles within the hospitality industry is still near all-time highs and this fact, along with high rates of inflation has driven wages higher. Many businesses are finding they need to offer bigger salaries to recruit the right people. If you’re struggling to get new staff onboard within your budget, why not try:
- Incentivised staff referral scheme
- Social media posts
- Changing recruiter
Reducing staff turnover
It will almost always be more efficient and cheaper to retain your staff rather than recruit and retrain new people. Offering improved benefits, promotion or training opportunities can prove highly effective in keeping the staff that matter most on board, why not consider:
- Free meals during shifts
- Free drinks/social events
- Staff reward programs
- Tasting sessions for new products
