Public Engagement & Outreach Activities

  • The hospitality and tourism sector is the fourth-largest employer in the UK, with 10% of the workforce employed in 180,000 businesses, including independent restaurants, major hotel chains and visitor attractions. The latest figures reveal that more than two-fifths (43%) of workers in this sector are foreign nationals – mainly from the former eastern and southern European countries. The management of such a diverse and multicultural workforce poses significant challenges and great opportunities for hospitality businesses. Two recent industry reports by People 1st (2013; 2015) highlight the skills, productivity and retention problems in the hospitality sector. On the top of that, Brexit poses significant threats for the hospitality sector and its multicultural workforce. There is no doubt that the latest political developments will affect the UK Hospitality industry and possibly slow down the steady growth experienced in the past two decades. It is up to the sector’s decision makers to identify and capitalise the new opportunities that will emerge in the local, regional, national and international markets. Format: 20 min presentation followed by 10min Q&A session OR discussion.
