HOW TO COUNTER THE CHRONIC CHEF SHORTAGE

One of the biggest challenges clubs and pubs are currently facing, is the continuing shortage of good hospitality staff and in particular, good chefs.  The Drop has found a way to help counter that challenge and want to share these expert tips with you in our FREE workshop on Tuesday April 5.

At The Drop’s recent finance forum, hosted by business and finance guru Ross Greenwood, industry experts highlighted that this protracted shortage of good F&B staff and chefs in particular, is a major issue. If you look at the industry recruitment sites like White Now, currently nearly half of all jobs advertised are for chef’s, cooks, catering or bar staff.

And it is an issue that is not going to get any easier in the coming years.

But there are ways you can stay ahead of the game, combat the hospitality skills shortage and enhance your business growth.
