A global pandemic. Travel bans and restrictions. The “Great Resignation.” And now, a soaring costof-living crisis. It certainly hasn’t been smooth sailing for the hospitality industry in recent years. Effective communication is more vital now than ever, as people return to hotels and other venues. The hospitality sector faces unique challenges when it comes to communicating with guests and employees in a way that’s informative, safe, and engaging.
On top of all this, hotels must continue to innovate and keep up with industry trends in order to remain competitive. And further complicating things, the hospitality industry is known for having one of the highest employee turnover rates at 73.8% annually. That number is expected to increase as the industry continues to feel the effects of the pandemic.
