    In this episode of Recruiting in Hospitality, Lancelot Narayan talks to Robbie Laidlaw and Chris Mitchell from Genuine Dining.  Both will be taking part in The Sprit of Hospitality, where they will be rowing the Atlantic in aid of Hospitality Action.
    The hospitality industry has a robust sense of community but it has continued to be pushed to its limits since the pandemic with numerous layoffs in the sector.
    The importance of Hospitality Action is vital in restoring and maintaining all those in the industry who have been affected, particularly those  struggling with financial and mental health issues, something that Chris and Robbie understand well and so they wanted to use 'The Spirit of Hospitality' Atlantic venture to help raise greatly needed funds for Hospitality Action so that they can continue to help as many people who need them now and in the future.
