Travel and tourism

As travel begins to re-open, the tourism sector is now looking beyond mere survival to rebuilding.

People are at the heart of every travel business and, as the sector gears up again, expanding the workforce is a priority. But travel is now experiencing some of the challenges other industries have been seeing for over a year, including difficulties with recruiting new talent, retaining current staff and maintaining employee morale.

Our recent report, The Modern Workforce, shares insight from over 400 senior executives on the issues they are facing, and provides advice from our people specialists on managing the post-pandemic workforce. Explore the full report here

Travel in 2022

We may be leaving travel restrictions behind, but there are some pandemic practices that will stay with us throughout 2022 and beyond – enhanced hygiene measures and booking flexibility will remain crucial to boosting consumer confidence after two years of uncertainty.

Investment in tech will also be crucial for those operators wanting to differentiate – agility, speed, convenience and innovation will be key. Read our predictions for 2022.

Our clients are UK and global travel brands ranging from travel agents (including online travel agents), to tour operators and resorts.
