The number of new trainees fell significantly last year, as the chambers of industry and commerce and the Dehoga industry association announced on Monday. In the hospitality industry, i.e. in hotels and restaurants, 21 percent fewer contracts were concluded than in 2019. In the event industry, it was 20 percent fewer, with tourism salespeople even 63 percent.
Although the numbers have been falling for several years, especially in the hospitality industry, they have recently stabilized somewhat, it said. “But what we experienced at the start of the training year with the effects of the corona is like a landslide,” said Martin Keppler, the general manager of the Northern Black Forest Chamber of Commerce and Industry, which is responsible for the tourism sector. “
The corona crisis has hit the hospitality industry, a large training industry,” said Dehoga country manager Fritz Engelhardt.
The entire industry now urgently needs a perspective, they warned. “Entrepreneurs must be able to give their employees at least one timetable in a timely manner despite Corona,” said Keppler.
The Chamber of Industry and Commerce (BWIHK) also recorded a significant decline in the number of trainees across all IHK sectors. A total of 39,309 new contracts were signed, a decrease of almost 13 percent compared to 2019. “It is very regrettable, but not a surprise,” said BWIHK President Marjoke Breuning.
In addition to tourism and the hospitality industry, the sectors most affected also included the traffic and transport industry, freight forwarders and logistics service providers, as well as paper manufacturers, printers and media designers. On the other hand, the situation is positive, especially for business people for IT system management and business people for digitization management.
