Consumer insights into behavioural attitudes and factors impacting a return to leisure activities

New insights show consumer confidence and health & safety key to the return

Our latest insights into the behavioural attitudes and factors impacting a return to leisure activities such as pubs and bars, restaurants, holidays, non-food shopping and visiting local attraction reveal encouraging signs that customers in the UK are ready to return if the correct measures for health and safety are in place.

The research, taken by two thousand people aged 18 and above, also highlights that the younger generation will be a driving force when it comes to kick-starting the retail, leisure and visitor economies.

“It’s reassuring to get this feedback from consumers on returning to hospitality and tourism, and we’re looking forward to reopening our doors in a safe way to our many loyal customers. The findings confirm how critical it will be to train people in the new hygiene measures and social customer experience factors. A Professional Standard for Service Operators offers a valuable benchmark, and also means that training will meet a defined national standard.”
