Navigating the Labor Shortage – Panel Discussion

Overview: There are many reasons behind the 2022 labor shortage.  The biggest reason for the employee shortage appears to be the fact that many experienced workers have simply left the hospitality and retail industry for more stable jobs. These industries have a reputation for long hours, low wages, and no benefits – a precarious combination that put many people at risk during the pandemic. With these challenges come opportunities for the industry to pivot and find solutions as we rebound in 2022.
