British Hospitality Association send clear message to government regarding post-Brexit hospitality w

The British Hospitality Association (BHA) has set out a 10-year strategy for a post-Brexit workforce in hospitality.

According to a KPMG report commissioned by the BHA, the hospitality industry requires an additional 60,000 workers per year on top of the 200,000 workers required to replace churn.

The Labour Migration in the Hospitality Sector report has found that the hospitality industry will be more affected by restrictions to EU migration than any other sector, with up to 24% of the workforce made up of migrants.

According to the report, 75% of waiters and waitresses, 25% of chefs and 37% of housekeeping staff in UK hospitality are from the EU.

It said that if EU migration fell to zero from 2019, the labour shortfall 10 years after Brexit would be one million.
