The survey builds on previous research conducted by Hospitality Action in 2018 and it provides a ‘unique insight’ into mental health issues. It was Mental Health Awareness Day on 10 October 2020, which aims to raise awareness of people’s mental health around the world.
Covid-19 has had an impact on the hospitality industry as only 38% of those surveyed said they feel positive about their future in the industry and more than 60% reported feeling stressed about the future.
Over one third of people surveyed (36%) admitted they are considering leaving the hospitality industry within a year.
Hospitality Action research found three quarters of respondents feel like their mental health and wellbeing is a priority for the business they work for. The number of people who feel supported by their employer has increased from 29% in 2018 to 38% in 2020.
