Talking about the current hiring graph of the F&B and hospitality industry Chef said, “We are currently running 100% capacity, whether it's restaurants or hotels. People are looking to hire as many human resources as it's practically possible to do quick recovery in their businesses. So I think people who ran out of jobs will find work again in the industry.”

Chef noted that till the onset of the pandemic, the corporate rules and benefits were never applied to this industry and the jobs were thankless to a great extent. But, since the reopening of these businesses after the pandemic protocols were lifted, issues such as mental health, flexibility, well being and so on caught the attention of both employers and employees. 

He added, “People in our industry were earlier only skilled, but now they're skilled and also educated.”
