Shortage of catering staff: inventory and solutions
If you have a terrace, the small recovery is already behind you. But the long-awaited opening of the interior spaces has finally arrived as well.
On June 9, your employees and clients will have the opportunity to meet again.
If it's almost certain that customers will be there, what about your staff? How did he get through this crisis?
Staff shortage and professional retraining
Professionals in the sector fear a severe shortage and note a flight of personnel to other sectors.
Some chefs have left commercial or traditional catering to join nursing homes, school canteens or start as home chefs to benefit from less restrictive hours.
Indeed, one can fear that the staff on forced leave for a year struggling to resume intense schedules, work even on weekends at a frantic pace, after having lived a period when some have literally discovered "normal" life, especially with more time spent with family. Often unattractive salaries do not help.
Many professional retraining have appeared and the CHR can actually lose many good things.
The situation is all the more worrying for the sector as the labor shortage is a phenomenon that pre-dated the health crisis.
In 2018, a survey by the Pôle Emploi counted 286,000 recruitment projects in the hotel / restaurant sector, nearly half of which are deemed difficult to fill .
A figure which risks further widening.
An exciting environment constantly reinvented
However, after this somewhat negative portrait taken from the restaurant world, it should also be noted that most of your employees are passionate!
