Gecko Hospitality Management Salary & Trends Report 2019 – 2020
Gecko Hospitality, North America’s premiere recruiting firm that connects top talent and companies within the hospitality and restaurant industries, released its fifth annual Hospitality Management Salary Survey Report for 2019 – 2020.
“This past year was like no other,” said Robert Krzak, President, Gecko Hospitality. “Both the hospitality and restaurant industries were affected as ‘COVID-19 layoff’ became one of the biggest reasons many qualified candidates were looking to make a change.”
In 2020, “unemployed” and “business closed/downsized” were the top reasons given by candidates who were looking for new roles, versus “better opportunity” and “improve quality of life” in 2019.
As vaccinations increase and government restrictions decrease, we are very hopeful for the year ahead. “We’re already seeing an uptick in hiring, and we’re optimistic for the year ahead,” said Krzak. “Resume gaps that could cause concern in prior years are more commonplace for 2020. Our clients are ready to hire qualified, talented professionals.”

What people are saying about Gecko Hospitality
“We have always had a great working relationship and good success with the folks at Gecko as well as the candidates they have provided us over the years.”
Gecko Hospitality helped me fill a unique position in a fraction of the time it has previously taken. Chris used his extensive resources and knowledge of the hospitality industry to provide us with multiple, qualified applicants. Gecko saved me the time and frustration I usually encounter with the hiring process and filled the position within weeks. I will definitely use them again.
I had the pleasure of working with Chris Shatto and Gecko Hospitality and had a great experience from beginning to end. The process went smoothly and the communication was direct and thorough. This team found exactly what I was looking for and would highly recommend their services for myself and for my hotel. Thank you Chris and Gecko Hospitality!
Thanks for your dedication and response…I had a great experience with your company and I will recommend you to anyone in the search!
It’s been great working with Gecko Hospitality. They made sure to thoroughly educate themselves on our company culture before seeking out candidates for us, and since, their communication and follow-up has been impeccable from candidate introduction to selection process scheduling. They’ve matched us with some great candidates that wouldn’t have discovered us through our own ads, and many are succeeding in their current roles. We look forward to our continuing partnership with Gecko Hospitality.
