Many businesses in the Noosa region, particularly in tourism and hospitality, are finding it difficult to find sufficient staff, affecting opening hours, service levels, staff wellbeing and business revenue.
Tourism Noosa is working with business associations, Noosa Council and others to develop short and long-term strategies to alleviate this problem which has been caused by a number of factors, including the loss of the international backpacker market due to border closures and lack of affordable housing.
Please take part in our labour shortages survey and help us gather information that will be used to inform actions and support approaches to government for support for our industry in Noosa.
The survey is anonymous. Please complete this survey by 2 August.
