It’s no surprise that that food services in Ireland were among the hardest hit businesses as a result of the Covid pandemic. The industry has shown adaptability, perseverance, and tenacity to survive. Now believing that the worst part of the crisis has passed, the industry needs to look at ways of reducing costs and improving efficiencies.
With leaner teams and limited resources, restaurant owners will need to focus on staff motivation and technology to help overcome some of these obstacles and help with their overall operations.
There have been many reports of poor staff morale in the hospitality industry, with five common themes emerging.
- Fear of being exposed to the virus
- Inadequate safety policies
- Job insecurity
- Inconsistent pay and hours
- Lack of health benefits and paid time off
All of which have added to increased occupational stress and led to uncertainty for staff to return to the restaurant industry.
