Hospitality sector is inhospitable, staff say

Working in the hospitality sector can be a real nightmare, according to research.

More than a quarter of the 1,000 hospitality workers polled by training organisation Foundation Degrees said they woke up in the night worrying about their jobs.

Also, one in eight said they never managed to unwind from work and that it was always on their mind.

Nearly two thirds said it took them more than an hour each day to unwind from the stresses of the workplace.

Half said they took their woes out on friends and family, with 19 per cent admitting that work had been the cause of serious family arguments.

Two-thirds of those polled also said they were currently unhappy at work, with one in five saying they were planning to change jobs in the New Year.

More than half said they wanted to improve their skills to boost their career prospects.
