MÁRIA HALENÁROVÁ – ADRIÁN ČAKANIŠIN

Abstract

This research paper explores the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on employment
in the tourism industry. Through a thorough analysis of current conditions and future
possibilities, the study utilizes both quantitative and qualitative methodologies to assess the
extent of job losses, the resilience of tourism-related occupations, and the strategies
implemented by industry stakeholders. By synthesizing real-time data and future projections,
the paper provides a comprehensive overview of the challenges faced by the sector and
proposes innovative solutions for recovery and growth. The research was carried out using the
statistical program Statgraphics19 and the ARIMA and ETS (Error Trend Seasonality) models.
The research offers valuable insights for policymakers, businesses, and academia, enabling
informed decision-making and strategic planning to revitalize employment in the tourism
industry in the post-pandemic era. We focused on tourism businesses in Slovakia based on
available data from the Slovak Statistical Office for the period 2013-2021. The impact of the
Covid-19 pandemic on employment was significantly reduced in 2020-2021. ARIMA and ETS
models point to an increase in the number of employees, especially in the food service industry.
