The talent landscape has changed and workers want different things in the new world. To meet the resourcing requirements of the future, hospitality businesses need to adapt.

How can they do this? How can they meet the needs of those that want to develop their career and those who want the flexibility to work when and where they want? Are there any short-term fixes? What longer-term strategies could be developed? The answers could be found in a seminar hosted by HVS.
