We know a good conversation can lead to great things, this is why we established The Big Hospitality Conversation. Our event can be seen as a catalyst to bringing together hospitality leaders to pledge their commitment for structured work placements, apprenticeships and a focus recruitment strategy for 16 – 24 year olds not in employment, education or training.
Our objectives are as follows:
1. Deliver 60,000 opportunities for young people by 2016 (20,000 apprenticeships, 20,000 jobs and 20,000 work placements).
2. Engage industry leaders and young jobseekers in meaningful dialogue on enhancing the perception and attraction of hospitality careers.
3. Ensure government recognises the strategic role of Hospitality in creating jobs, developing talent and tackling youth unemployment in the UK.
The newly-established Tourism Council between the government and industry is in part the direct result of our industry’s focus on jobs and skills. The Council’s agenda will major on improving skills, jobs and boosting enterprise in the industry.
We would really appreciate your support by attending our Big Hospitality Conversation event which has proven to transform thousands of people’s lives. To date our event has successfully created over 67,000 pledges, not only have these pledges proven beneficial to young people, but also to businesses themselves. The quality and enthusiasm shown from the people at these events transfers into the working environment, giving you a willing, enthusiastic and long-term employee who will work to the best of their ability and strive for consistent improvement.
So don’t delay, reserve your space now and help the future of your business and our younger generation.
