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 not prevent the growth of some models.  While some restaurants are struggling, some of our clients are opening new locations.

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 250 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

  • Thanks Again!

  • Amy is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does.

    Amy contacted me in a time where I was unhappy where I was but wasn’t doing anything to change it. She was very informative and if she didn’t have the information at hand, she got it. She revamped an old resume making it more about achievements than responsibilities. She coached me on interview tactics before multiple interviews and was there to talk about them afterwards. Every conversation we had felt more like a friendship than business. She is genuine, honest and has a passion for what she does. She also helped boost my confidence through the entire interview progress. Whatever she is doing, she must be doing it right because I got the job! Thanks Amy for a life changing experience.
    Sincerely,
    Shawn Ware

  • I would 100% recommend Ross

    I cannot begin to thank Ross and Karen enough! without the two of them I wouldn't have even known about the position! The interview process was quick, easy and simple. After only a short week I was in a position I knew I was going to love forever and it was all thanks to them! Ross has been so good about following up with me even after being hired, asking how my experience has been, what hours I'm working etc. and to top it all off Ross even sent me a gift card thanking me for working with him. I would 100% recommend Ross to anyone looking for a career in the industry!
    Cheers,
