Brexit makes many jobs tougher to fill, with hotels and restaurants being among the hardest hit by limits on movement of EU and non-EU workers.  More focus will be on attracting and developing local talent in hotels, restaurants and retailers across the UK.

According to Gordon Ramsay, the Michelin-starred chef with his own restaurant chain and associated hiring challenges, “it’s going to get back to the modern-day apprenticeship. So not only do I welcome that kind of change, but I think it’s going to put a lot more emphasis on homegrown talent, which I think we need to do.”

The accommodation and food services industry, according to Mercer, “has grown by 32% since 2000 (ONS), with the...

Now, most of us are familiar with the Sunday night blues. The kind that comes with the sunset and brings with it questions like: “what am I doing with my life?” and “will I ever live the life I have envisioned for myself?” These questions are not new, nor are they unique to the individual – they are wholly universal.

While this thought should bring us comfort in knowing that we’re not alone, it does beg the question: why do so many of us feel this way? This week during my internet wanderings, I came across a TED Talk by Alain de Botton titled ‘A kinder, gentler philosophy of success’ that attempted to answer this.  

The age of envy

Botton argues that part of this unhappiness comes from the fact we are “surrounded by snobs.” We may have mostly discarded our attachment to patronage and...
