One million hospitality workers expected to return to work in July

New research has found that almost one million hospitality staff members are likely to return to work before the end of July as six in ten outlets prepare for reopening next month..

Results of the survey by UK Hospitality show that over 960,000 staff are expected to come back from furlough in July and further 720,000 by the end of September.

The research also found that around 60% of the UK’s hospitality sector will reopen on or within a few days of 4 July and that three-quarters of pubs and accommodation businesses will be open again by the end of the month.

UK Hospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls said: “This is incredibly positive news and a fantastic demonstration of the very hard work that businesses have put in getting themselves ready to reopen.

“Everyone can see the devastating effect that this crisis has had on hospitality businesses. Venues have been closed for months and millions of workers in the sector have been furloughed. To see such large numbers of businesses ready to open again, welcoming back so many staff members so quickly is hugely encouraging.

“There is still a long way to go and businesses are by no means out of the woods yet. This is a very positive start, though. Getting venues open and customers through the doors means that more jobs will be kept safe. Despite the positive news we need support for those businesses that are still not able to open, and for those whose jobs rely upon them.”
