COVID-19 has accelerated the pace of digitalisation as well as the shifts in business and service models (e.g. contactless guest journey). Wellness and sustainability will also continue to remain priority considerations for consumers in the post-COVID world. The Hospitality & Tourism industry must transform to meet new consumer demands in order to stay relevant and capture longer-term growth opportunities. Therefore, it is an imperative for the workforce to deepen strategic core skills and acquire emerging skills in areas of digitalisation and experience design, sustainability management, etc. that are essential for the sector to remain competitive.
