Things have changed rapidly in our industry following the end of the pandemic, and every hiring manager in hospitality has dealt with the adjustment in our workforce demanding better pay, better conditions, better hours, and benefits that are expected in most other industries. For many of us this transition is another new and sometimes difficult path to tread. Where do I find these resources? Can I afford them? Can I afford not to offer my employees something? Moreover, our industry has always been rife with addiction, long hours, and high stress situations that exacerbate the issues faced by the 1 in 5 people in the population who already deal with mental illness in some capacity. For an industry where customer experience is king, how are we ensuring our staff is best prepared to offer the best version of themselves to therefore offer the best service possible? This talk addresses shifting cultural norms to support a healthy, balanced workplace for your employees without sacrificing profitability, as well as tips for offering benefits based on what your bottom-line can afford.
