On Thursday 13th January, Haymarket Hotel played host to the launch party for Hospitality4Careers, a brand-new service brought to you by the team behind Appetite4Recruitment, Appetite4Work and Hospitality Jobs UK.
Appetite4Careers is focussed on ensuring hospitality businesses attract, retain and develop their staff and will specialises in leadership, culture, coaching, mentoring and career pathways / succession planning for both individuals and businesses.
Nicky Wallis, Co-Founder & Managing Director for Appetite4Careers said, “People are the most important asset to any hospitality business. Learning, developing and providing a clear route for progression is key to keeping staff engaged and retained and with staff shortages at an all-time high, we as an industry must change our approach. Appetite4Careers is here to support and guide businesses on how to attract the right people and how to create a culture and development framework to make them stay.”
Steve Kirby, Operations Director at ETM Group and guest speaker at Appetite4Careers launch party said, “Learning and development has proven a key component of both our recruitment and retention strategies as most employees crave greater control of their career and understanding of how they contribute to the broader business. One thing I am certain of is any investment in your people will always deliver a strong return.”
Suresh Banarse, HR Director at Wahacca also commented, “As leaders in hospitality, our number one focus has to be retaining our team. We all know the impact high turnover has on our business and this new generation are different. They need to be excited and inspired. We are the enablers, we need to be the ones who constantly create opportunities for our teams to learn.
Nick Clover, Co-Founder of Appetite4Careers said, “I’m very excited about the opportunities Appetite4Careers will provide in helping businesses change their approach to recruiting, training and retaining their staff. Following many conversations with our clients from Appetite4Recruitment, Appetite4Careers and Hospitality Jobs UK, effort spent on retaining staff has fallen secondary to recruiting new staff. This mindset must change and we are here to provide the skills and frameworks for make this happen.”
