Steve West Part 3: Dealing With Our Mental Health Struggles and the Work of Hospitality Action

In the third and final part of my chat with Steve West, we continue our discussion around mental health issues in the hospitality industry and how we are able to identify and rectify things when we encounter them. We also talk about the amazing work that Hospitality Action do in terms of serving our industry.

The key takeaway from this episode is that we, as owners or managers, must create a safe space for our employees to be vulnerable and to allow them the opportunity to speak up about the issues they are dealing with.
