The workforce crisis is affecting every corner of our industry—from frontline hourly positions to mid-level management and beyond. Join this timely webinar next Thursday, October 14 as U.S. Travel examines the staffing crisis from a different angle.

The loss of jobs due to the pandemic decimated travel—which despite gains through the summer, still falls 10% below its pre-pandemic levels with one in six job openings within the Leisure & Hospitality sector alone. With millions of job openings left unfilled, it is time to rethink the root of the crisis.

This webinar will analyze recent research on the state of the workforce, followed by a challenge to shift paradigms around the future of jobs. How can we make our travel and hospitality jobs more aspirational? How do we strike the right balance of intrinsic and extrinsic motivations? Eric Shaffer will also further explore how technology can be deployed, not to eliminate workers, but to make the experience of working engaging and joyful.
