HR and Support for the Hospitality Industry

Hospitality is an industry that can suffer a high turnover due to numerous positions needed to run a hotel, season periods and special events — all of which influence hiring. Employee well-being and morale is a challenge for HR departments across all sectors, and the hospitality industry is no different.

Yet providing all of that in-house can be costly, not to mention time-consuming. By working with us as your HR advisors, you and your team will benefit from our wealth of experience, from hands-on support and guidance.

As a CIPD member and part of a rich community of more than 100 years, we’ve been championing better work and working lives by setting professional standards for HR and people development, as well as driving positive change in the world of work.

We can look into every aspect of your HR and help you meet your legal obligations such as food hygiene, working time and minimum wage. It’s often easier to keep good quality staff than it is to find new ones. We will help you identify and address any particular causes of concern. We will suggest ways for you to increase staff morale and improve staff turnover.
