Monday, 19 September 2022
Position paper Social Affairs

The hospitality sector provides 11 million jobs in EU27 and highly contributes to the EU economy.

Nevertheless, the sector is now facing labour shortages to an unprecedented extent.

This paper presents the ongoing challenges and reasons behind this phenomenon as well as solutions to be developed both at the EU and national levels.

Examples include:

  • Enhancing legal migration.
  • Promoting different forms of work.
  • Developing education and training programmes.

In addition, this paper highlights initiatives taken by HOTREC members at a national level to tackle these challenges.
