The staffing challenge in the hospitality sector has never been more acute, with the Coronavirus pandemic, Brexit and the increase in National Living Wage levels twinned with rising costs and falling consumer confidence all having an impact.
With this in mind, Restaurant has created a free-to-download Staffing Report that not only identifies the challenges the industry faces but explores the options available to businesses when trying to address these issues.
The Staffing Report features the results of an exclusive survey of 150 restaurant businesses across the country that identifies the key areas of concerns for operators and where more support is required as well as where the opportunities lie.
The easy-to-navigate digital report also includes expert advice on how businesses can recruit staff from overseas, including the pitfalls they need to avoid, and the five key ways to nail the interview process.
It provides insight into how businesses can get involved in the apprenticeship process, with a look at those businesses that are already successfully going down this route, as well as how to attract and retain staff, with real-life case studies as examples.
The role that technology can play in helping staff recruitment and retention is also explored.
The Staffing Report has been created by Restaurant in partnership with Deputy and Gold Star Chefs. Download your free copy here.
