- The leisure sector is booming after the removal of COVID-19 restrictions.
- However, companies are struggling to hire new staff and have bumped up salaries to attract more workers.
After two years of struggle due to the pandemic, Britain's leisure industry is coming back on track. Pent-up demand has brought a stronger recovery to the sector as people rush to embark on vacations that had been delayed due to the COVID-19 restrictions. Similarly, spending on other leisure activities has also increased as normalcy returns.
Among the primary beneficiaries of the boost are the hospitality companies. However, the rising demand has also brought a challenge alongside - the shortage of staff. Employers in the sector had to cut down on staff due to the pandemic, but they are now struggling to hire at the same pace.
