ODEN has been following closely the different media outlets that are reporting the struggles that employers in the tourism sector are experiencing. As some reports have noted, hiring in the tourism sector is in full swing, as the economy is reopening, but a lot of people have left the industry because of uncertainty, and many are not expected to come back.

We know that the road to recovery for the tourism and hospitality sector will require out-of-the-box thinking and collaborative solutions. The members agencies in the ODEN network can facilitate access to talent who have a disability as a part of any labour strategy for employers in the tourism sector.

Join us on Thursday, September 23rd from 1:30 to 2:30 pm as ODEN hosts the Ontario Restaurant, Hotel and Motel Association (ORHMA) to hear from their Director of Corporate Marketing & Business Development, Fatima Finnegan.

ORHMA is the largest provincial hospitality association in Canada. With over 4,000 members, representing more than 11,000 establishments across the province, ORHMA is uniquely positioned to represent the issues that most impact hospitality businesses. The hospitality sector employs a diverse spectrum of workers and opportunities available in the sector. The hospitality industry prides itself in diversity and inclusion and this includes accommodating guests and their employees. This information session will highlight what are the top skills and core competencies for the sector, what are the most in-demand jobs, and what are some of the requirements that service providers need to be aware when preparing job seekers to enter the tourism industry.

If you have candidates that are unsure of where they fit in, they have a pathway of opportunity waiting for them with hospitality where businesses pride themselves in training and development. ORHMA looks forward to connecting with you to answer your questions and provide information on the hospitality and tourism industry.
