On 1 October 2020, DFDL hosted a live panel discussion on recent developments and employment challenges in the hospitality industry with insights from around the globe.

For this special occasion, DFDL invited a special guest from the hospitality industry, Aline Boulom (Accor Director of Mobility & Recruitment), to join our labor and employment advisers from the US, Devjani H. Mishra (Littler Shareholder), Europe, Dragana Bajić (Kinstellar Head of Regional Employment Practice) and Southeast Asia, Marion Carles Salmon (DFDL Head of Regional Employment and Labor Practice) and Paul Volodarsky (DFDL Deputy Head of the Regional Real Estate Practice).  

Moderated by Paul, our panelists shared their insights on how businesses are handling their legal and human resources COVID-19 challenges. Our experts discussed latest hospitality and tourism updates in their respective jurisdictions and areas post COVID-19, successful human resource optimization strategies, salary, benefits and relocation management along with workplace safety measures and obligations.

The panel discussion ended with our experts offering their forecast on the future prospects of the hospitality sector and its recovery. The audience gained valuable knowledge and tips on what actions human resources managers should take during and post COVID-19 to stay as adaptive and resilient as possible.
