Overcoming labour shortages: HOTREC’s proposals

The hospitality sector significantly contributes to the EU economy, while it creates jobs and growth (11 million for the EU27). It is an inclusive sector that promotes gender balance and provides many first working experiences to the youth.

Nevertheless, since the COVID aftermath, the sector is facing labour and skills shortages to an unprecedented extent. HOTREC’s position paper on labour shortages aims at analysing the reasons for the current phenomena and puts forward concrete solutions. We believe that enhancing legal migration; promoting different forms of work and the image of the sector; developing education and training programmes; revamping the hospitality skills passport, and promoting digitalised procedures could be possible ways out of this crisis.

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

We remain engaged to, together with the EU institutions, continue working on possible solutions.
