Tourism Sector Rebounding, But Needs Human Resources

Nicole Solano

During COVID, a number of hotels shuttered and with the virtual collapse of the industry, thousands of persons lost their jobs, while others survived, but on reduced staff. C.E.O. Nicole Solano says that while some properties have returned, the employees have not and so there is a demand for human resources.

“We have seen the return of the majority of the tourism hotel, the hotel plant as well as tour operators, tour guides, everybody has come back. Our biggest challenge right now would be employees within the tourism industry. A lot of them have moved to work in different sectors because when tourism was shut down for COVID, thy had to obviously find work so what we are doing right now is to make sure that we can attract more and more employees within the tourism industry and train. So training is on the top of the priority list to make sure that we can have enough human resources and a big human resources pool from which our operators and hotels can pick from.”
