Covid Update from Patrice Rice, CEO Founder

I've been recruiting in the hospitality industry for 30 years and have seen the restaurant and hospitality industry rebound through many crises. Once again Hospitality leads the way in the nation’s recovery. There is no question the hospitality industry has been hit the hardest but the HEALING PROCESS HAS BEGUN!

In March, restaurants and bars gained 176,000 jobs. Hospitality led the way in the March U.S. jobs report and had the largest increase of any industry, as economic activity resumes while the nationwide unemployment rate dropped to 6%.

As Restaurant/Hospitality Recruiters, we are playing a big part in re-staffing many diverse companies. Some are using their PPP money to assist with staffing their locations. It seems like every day companies are reach out to us asking for helping filling positions.

Now that the vaccine has been distributed and continues to be distributed, the “flood gates” have started to open. We are seeing a huge wave of companies opening new locations, restaffing and there are smiles of people’s faces once again.
