The daily workings of most hospitality positions do not necessarily revolve around math. Hospitality is, after all, a people business. Take not, however, of the word “business” in “people business.” Hospitality is ultimately a business, and business requires efficiency. Running an efficient operation does require some math.
Some daily functions that require math may be obvious: accounts receivable, accounts payable, audits, and even just balancing cash in the drawer. Less obvious examples might be in housekeeping, where keeping inventory on the cart minimizes restocking. Math is also necessary for keeping par levels and scheduling staff.
Mathematics is a language; it uses alphabets, numbers and symbols. Every person around the world learns the same math. Yet, math scares some people. Mostly, math is scary because people think that it is difficult, or that they cannot understand it. Still, everybody knows they need it. Math helps solve problems, plan one’s day, and is essential to everyday life.
