Essential Workforce Intelligence for Destination Organizations

Product not yet rated

Recorded On: 08/16/2023

Workforce shortages remain a pervasive industry challenge. Destination organizations are increasingly being asked to both speak to and help solve these challenges. Destinations International has partnered with Tourism Economics to provide destination organizations with the most detailed and actionable workforce intelligence available at the local level. Join us for an overview of these proprietary insights that can immediately inform your workforce development advocacy and strategy. 

This webinar will address several important questions:

  • Forecasts: How will our workforce evolve in three years?
  • Demographics: What age, race, gender, and education level is our workforce? How does hospitality sector diversity compare to the broader workforce? 
  • Recovery: How many unfilled jobs does our industry have and how does that compare to pre-pandemic levels? 
  • Benchmarking: How do our workforce challenges compare with other destinations? How is wage growth tracking against other industries and other destinations?
