Employing Student Workers in the Hotel Industry on a Part-Time Basis

Abstract
Using student workers can be seen as a flexible option for many organizations. Drawing data from interviews with hotel managers, this study aims to explore flexible options as a response to labour shortages in the Taiwan hotel industry, specifically to explore the potential of employing full time college/university students as part time workers in the hotel industry and to provide insights into hotel managers’ perceptions in employing full time college/university students to work on a part time basis. The findings suggest that student labour is considered an effective and a flexible human resource to meet employers’ needs in solving the labour shortage problem in the hotel industry. This research attempts to bridge a research gap relating to the role of student labour in the Taiwanese hotel industry, one that has been neglected in labour market research, particularly with respect to flexible labour.
