Staff Shortages

With the reopening of the Tourism and Hospitality industry there has been considerable concern expressed by businesses that they are unable to recruit the staff they need. In this short survey we are working with the Tourism Alliance to gauge the extent of this problem, whether it is impacting some sectors or regions of the UK more than others and what businesses and Government can do to ease recruitment shortages.

The survey takes less than 5 minutes to complete and you input is very important in developing data that we can then use to inform Government and seek solutions.

The deadline for the Survey is 28th May 2021

Thank You
