Recruitment and staff retention on the agenda for AHC workshop

ONE of the workshops taking place at this year’s Annual Hotel Conference (AHC) being held at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel this autumn will focus on recruitment and retention in the hospitality sector.

Jill Whittaker, Managing Director of HIT Training, is one of the experts who will lead this session alongside Jessica Berry, Talent Manager, The Doyle Collection, and Dawn Redman, Non-Executive Director, Hospitality Jobs UK.

“I’m really excited to be involved in the AHC’s workshop on staffing issues in hospitality,” said Whittaker (pictured).  “As we all know, the sector is the fourth largest employer in the UK and already struggling to keep up with the pace of growth.

“And, that’s before we take into consideration the impact Brexit will have on our talent pool.

“This session will provide a fantastic opportunity to discuss how we can tackle the challenge head on through greater awareness of the incredible career progression and apprenticeship training available for those new to and already in the industry.”

The recruitment and retention workshop takes place on Thursday 12th October from 10.30 am to 11.15 am at the Hilton Manchester Deansgate Hotel. Tickets are still available for The AHC at including a significantly discounted hotelier rate. @copy NewspaperTimes - All rights reserved
