Conclusions. Human creativity is manifested not only in a person's ability to produce new ideas, solutions, projects, but also in flexibility, adaptability to environmental conditions that arise in the process of life. The management of hospitality institutions should pay more attention to the process of training their employees, improving their qualifications in order to gain a deeper understanding of the concept of human creativity, which will allow the team, based on the knowledge gained, to clearly understand how to show their creativity. Today, in the conditions of war in Ukraine, the situation of the state in general indicates a high level of creativity of employees in the hospitality sector, because flexibility and adaptation to changes, production of new ideas, self-education in conditions of war are the best indicators of the activity of institutions in terms of the level of creativity of personnel. Motivation for creativity should be both internal and external, because employees who feel internal motivation to perform tasks are doing work for pleasure and out of their own interest or desire to overcome a particular individual challenge, and external motivation is associated with external incentives, goals, or pressures that can motivate an employee to perform a particular task. The process of managing the creativity of employees in catering organizations should be preceded by a step-by-step method of determining the ability of employees to think creatively and whether the management style is typical for a given organization today. Only after the analysis of these factors it is necessary to formulate methods of stimulating the development of creativity of employees. The results of the study show that the most effective methods of stimulating the creativity of employees in the hospitality industry are the management's trust in the employees, the ability to listen to their ideas, joint team-building activities, and care for the physical health of the employees.
