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. 911 hit the country hard and impacted the hospitality industry. Once people began to heal things slowly went back to “business as usual”.

There is no question the hospitality industry has been hit the hardest in the last 9 months, however there is hope on the horizon. Recent statistics by the Bureau of Labor Statistic, show employment in leisure and hospitality increased by 271,000 in October 2020, with gains in food services and drinking places (+192,000); arts, entertainment, and recreation (+44,000); and accommodation (+34,000). Leisure and hospitality have added 4.8 million jobs since April, but employment in the industry is still down by 3.5 million since February.

Our FREE Outplacement Services were greatly appreciated by our client companies and restaurant/hospitality employees who were forced into unemployment.

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 is close to being distributed, I feel the “flood gates” will open in 2021 and there will be a huge wave of restaurants opening and employees getting hired.

    I was originally contacted by Tim as a reference for someone who used to work for me. He must have recognized that I myself was a good fit, because within a few minutes the conversation turned to me applying for the job.  He was always pushing for me. He was there to help with everything, every step of the way, and was in constant communication. He played a massive role in me landing an amazing job with an even better company. I can't stress enough how awesome this guy was. Tim will coach you through the entire process and be your biggest advocate.

    He took his time to get to know me and really ensure that I was what he was looking for. He ensured that I had information about the hiring company to ensure it was something I felt I wanted to pursue. Chris also gave me some helpful tips and tricks in his emails about the interview process, you could tell that he was doing everything on his end to help you, it all just came down to how well you executed on your end. I would certainly recommend anyone looking for opportunities to reach out to Chris, the first possibility didn’t work out that we were attempting but he came back and nailed it with the second opportunity.
