Good morning folks hope everyone is doing well
Good morning everyone. Look forward to engaging with you this morning to address staffing challenges in our industry.
Hi Everyone.As Stefan said the employee is in the driving seat but still "the buyer beware " when searching for new opportunities.
Employees are and will always be the key to a sustainable competitive advantage and organisations must act accordingly.
Excellent point Brian. Industry should provide more scope for and experiences for transition year students.
Colleges are eager to work with employers. But the relationship must be sustainable and mutually beneficial - also throughout a pandemic
some hotels offer rooms to new staff for limited periods
Lidl for examples has made the commitment to providing a living wage €12.60 per hour at a minimum
Basic Skills training e.g CERT 16 week programms of old need to be re-introduced at entry level and opened up in all regions
@richard I do not think to - international trends show that interest in apprenticeships is on the decline
understood Ralf but the industry has lost so many people, so much experience at Supervisory level, who is going to train, coach and mentor those who do join the industry.
A structured TY Programme is required to promote our industry and give students the opportunity to experience our industry first hand.
it should not be the government’s responsibility to look after the training needs of organisations. In fact many organisations prefer talent from programmes other than hospitality
Thanks Brian and Colleagues
Thanks everyone, a very interesting, thought provoking session, Brenda
