About this topic, I want to have your opinion on how to attract new talent in our world. Often this sector is told through its dark part (weekends, many hours, little rest, etc…) and the positive side is not told, how bright it is, how much it enriches the people who work there and how much satisfaction there is.
Yes, this sector is often described as the field in which one sacrifices one’s social life, but it is not said. In this historical moment it is important to change the narrative of this sector; in the sense that in this world one can reconcile private life with work. This job is then seen as a fallback, and it is not understood that you need to have specific skills and professionalism. We do a lot of training, over the years we have grown a lot, the company must invest in growth and the well-being of staff.
Recently, in a hotel school, I was told that the waiter and reception courses were emptied in favor of cooking classes, especially after the television boom of all those programs that aim to give value to the kitchen and the chefs. On the other hand, the children of waiters would never do that job.
