Roundtable series for the hospitality and leisure sector – June 2017

In June, we are holding a series of informal roundtables for employers in the hospitality and leisure sector.

The sector is understandably concerned about the economic outlook and there is rarely a day when the subjects of Brexit and immigration do not appear in the media. The ongoing challenges of employing skilled staff and the high numbers of non-UK nationals working in the sector in particular is a major concern and employers need to start planning now for the future.

Also, with a potential skills shortage looming, retaining and motivating staff is even more important and tips form a key part of the rewards system. However, significant changes for employers are afoot, with new government policy likely to result in the implementation of new working practices in this area.

And, in terms of other government policies, there has been a significant rise in HMRC’s activities in policing the operation of the National Minimum Wage. It’s important that employers consider all elements of pay and incentivisation, such as staff accommodation, to ensure that they don’t get caught out.
