Business Leaders Look To Fill Workforce Shortage

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN - Business leaders in Bozeman are looking for ways to fill a need for workers in the hospitality industry.

Chamber of commerce members said that Bozeman has seen a 30 percent increase in hotels in recent years, but not enough skilled workers to staff those hotels during the summer.

Business leaders held a round table discussion Tuesday afternoon, discussing ways they can partner with Gallatin College and Montana State University to fill the positions needed in hotels and restaurants.

 “We want to make sure our businesses, here, have enough training, have enough people they can call on, rely on to fill that need during the summer to be great customer service for our guests,” said Daryl Schliem, who is the Bozeman Chamber of Commerce President.

More hotels are also popping up around Bozeman.

Schliem said five more hotels could open by next year.
