Hospitality could face tough year
The hospitality sector could face a tough year ahead in recruitment, it has been suggested.

Head of marketing and development at pub group Marston's Andy Cooney stated that the industry should focus on recruiting quality staff in 2008, CatererSearch reports.

"Recruiting quality staff will make a real difference," he said, as it will impact on the costs the organisation must spend on employment.

"This year the pub sector is under pressure for recruitment but there are growth areas such as food, which tends to use more highly skilled staff," he added.

Lois Heywood, managing director of executive recruiter Chess Partnership, noted that restaurants outside of London may find 2008 is a difficult year.

However, she predicted London hotels will continue their strong growth.

Roger Bootle, the economic advisor at Deloitte, recently warned that the hospitality sector will be affected by the slowdown in consumer spending this year.
