Staffing Status


Navigating the industry recruitment crisis, H&E North speaks to some industry voices to find out the latest advice to build your resources.

Crisis, Yes or No

The recruitment crisis is the buzzword currently overshadowing the events industry, but what we don’t often acknowledge is how it hits each business differently. Richard Morris, Owner of Hospitality Staffing, says: “Attracting candidates to jobs within the hospitality industry has never been harder. A lot of people have left the industry post- pandemic to pursue careers in other industries, and more companies are putting a bigger emphasis on staff retention meaning hiring has never been so challenging.”

The event industry’s reliance on data to help it plan for the future, increase its resilience, manage risk and justify investment decisions, is growing year on year.
