Hotel Restaurants have been hit hard and the labour shortage news is bleak. Let FIS add some festive cheer this season
Across the media we are constantly hearing negative news about how the hotel sector is currently facing labour shortages as we head towards the festive season.
As the public gear up for going out to celebrate, as it ‘tis the season to be jolly, the hotel sector has a grey cloud hanging over them.
Not only are they battling with ingredient shortages for their chefs to produce spectacular dishes due to Brexit causing havoc for lorry drivers, they also are facing staffing issues. These are due to the national living wage going up, hence their overheads are rising, and labour shortages driven by concerns over hospitality as a career, Brexit and COVID.
This has led many in this sector running short on strength and capacity so are having to turn away business.
So, how can FIS support you if you work in the Hotel Sector, and bring back some festive cheer? There are in fact several ways in which we could support, which are outlined below.
