A job market under pressure in the hospitality industry
The hospitality industry is currently facing recruitment challenges in an ever-changing job market. While hotel demand continues to grow, the sector is struggling to recruit and retain the talent needed to deliver quality services to its customers.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on the job market, particularly in the hotel sector. As travel restrictions and confinements during the crisis drastically reduced hotel demand, this led to a reduction in available jobs and a massive wave of redundancies. This period was an opportunity for many workers in the sector to reassess their career priorities, train in new skills and change career paths.
At the same time, the hotel industry is finding it increasingly difficult to attract new profiles, as it is seen as a complicated sector with restrictive working hours. For industry professionals, it's becoming increasingly difficult to find passionate candidates who match their needs.
