Abstract

Tourism is an important sector in the Croatian economy. To retain its unique position in global markets, Croatian tourism has to compete with other world destinations and to attract travelers worldwide. This will not be possible without efficient human resource development policies and practices. The main problem in tourism are very similar across countries: low pay, very high demand for staff flexibility and mobility, high staff turnover, high share of informal employment arrangements and persistent skill shortages.

Keywords: tourism sector trends, employment in Horeca, employment by occupational fields and by qualification needs for tourism
