The paper examines the crisis in the hospitality industry with regard to recruitment and retention of employees. Several contributing factors to the recruitment and retention phenomenon are considered, such as increased diversity, the imbalance between skilled and unskilled labor and the nonexistent benefits, such as health insurance, profit sharing and retirement benefits. The author notes that management strategies are counterproductive and do not offer the employee real incentive to strive for achievement. The paper also addresses the issue of corporate responsibility for employees. The paper concludes with suggestions for employee retention in the hospitality industry.
