Staff shortages and rising costs ask for structural change in hospitality

Staff shortages

The hospitality industry is grappling with a structural labor shortage: at the close of 2022, 87% of hoteliers reported being understaffed, a third of which described the deficit as severe. This scarcity of skilled workers leads to increased operational strain and compromises service quality.

Rising costs

Labor shortages and inflation trends have significantly increased real wages. This spike, more pronounced in hospitality than in any other industry, compounds cost management challenges, forcing many businesses to navigate a delicate balance between staffing and profitability.
