Industry Workshops: People Potential - Belfast

Building an attractive workplace to attract and retain talent.

About the event:

The recruitment and retention of good people into the Tourism & Hospitality sector remains a pressing concern for you, our industry. Tourism NI’s Industry Survey, November 2023, revealed that after rising energy costs, staffing was the second highest challenge heading in this year. 

Tourism NI has responded with the Make it Here campaign, designed to change perceptions of careers in the sector. However, changing perceptions can only work alongside a positive working environment. We need to ensure that the employee experience in the sector is positive, building long-term careers.

To address this, Tourism NI, Hospitality Ulster and HATS have joined forces to promote the Wellbeing Promise – an employee centred approach to ensure a positive workforce.

Join us at our People Potential sessions to find out more about the Wellbeing Promise and talk to businesses who have adopted it.  The Wellbeing Promise seeks to act as a signpost for both employers and their teams to access the necessary resources in existence to support best practice of wellbeing, not only in the workplace, but also supporting individuals in their wider lives.

Where and when? 

The workshops are being delivered at three locations across Northern Ireland, so you can choose whichever venue is most convenient.

Each session will run from 9:30am - 11:00am, including a networking brunch.
