Competitive destinations think long-term. They invest first and foremost in their human resources—tourism’s true engine. Those who work in the industry can be a make-or-break dimension of success of tourism businesses, destinations, and countries. Solimar works hand-in-hand with governments and educational institutions to strengthen the long-term availability of skilled tourism professionals to deliver an exceptional visitor experience.
Building a world-class workforce requires thoughtful collaboration between the private sector to create tourism jobs and the public sector to create a suitable environment for learning and productivity. Solimar brings these groups together and develops programs that strengthen existing education and training providers, builds skills to meet current and projected demand, fills gaps in the labor market, and helps to create opportunities for youths in the tourism industry.
