Hospitality Trending for the “New Norm”

The Hospitality Industry is embracing what may be a permanent “new norm”.  Extra sanitizing, gloves and masks are making for a safer experience as many guests prefer to dine-in.  Carry out has been a interim solution but to me, even a great steak doesn’t taste the same in Styrofoam.

Many restaurants are re-staffing and looking to Hospitality Recruiters for help locate top talent.  Not all furloughed workers want to return to their job.  This paid time off, with unemployment, gave them the ability to explore their options.

Restaurant Recruiters play a big part in re-staffing their hospitality clients. Many are using their PPP money to assist with staffing their locations.

Covid may have slowed down the hospitality industry but it did not prevent the growth of some models.  While some restaurants are struggling, some of our clients are opening new locations. Restaurants are redefining their customer services.  Many are doing carry-out and delivery that never dreamed that would be their model.

The hospitality has been, and is still, the fastest growing industry.  Aug 9, 2019 — In June 2019, the leisure and hospitality industry—which consists of accommodation and hospitality nationwide, an increase of 42000 hires from May and 64000 hires from June 2018.

16.78 million people   This statistic shows the number of employees in the hospitality and leisure industry in the United States from 2009 to 2019. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics accounted for 16.78 million people working in the hospitality and leisure industry as of December 2019.

2.5 million jobs  The economy gained 2.5 million jobs in May, the first time it has added jobs since February, as hundreds of thousands of workers flooded back to jobs in restaurants, health care and construction with the reopening of several states in mid-May. The May unemployment rate dropped to 13.3 percent from 14.7 percent.

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”.

Our 350 Hospitality Recruiters, at Patrice & Associates, stand ready to help restaurants as their staffing partner.  Our free out-placement service was appreciated by our clients.

We are in this together and together we will survive.

What Clients Say About Patrice & Associates

  • I would like to personally thank Ken for all his help in helping me to find a job. On June 1st I was released from my job of 11 years. I was unsure of what my next steps would be. I haven't been through an interview in years and I felt like I was unprepared. Ken took the time to help me step by step. He first gathered all my personal information and work history. He built a resume from all of that information and articulated my accomplishments in a way I never could have. He sent me tips on what to wear, questions to ask, and called after my interviews to see how it went. He gave me support and encouragement when I was at my absolute lowest. I couldn't have asked for a better recruiter! Thank you again Ken! Thanks, Again, KenGeneral Manager, Logan's Road House, Chattanooga TN
