There has been a lot of news about labor shortages in the hotel and restaurant industries as of late - and frankly a lot of blame as well. “Candidates don’t show up for interviews” or “HR ghosted me” or “They’re just chasing another dollar at the restaurant down the street” or “We don’t have a budget to do it” are common talking points today.
We try to address and get around these barriers in this episode, and the common theme that we keep coming back to is coaching and people development - but the conversation goes beyond the typical talking points you hear about taking care of your people. We try to come at it based on the current employment and business environment, what’s driving the unionization efforts today, and what some of the more innovative companies in hospitality are doing right now.
Matt shares great stories that drive the points home and he does a great job in outlining some of the steps that you can take today to make a difference in your organization.
