HOSPA secures Savoy Educational Trust grant
For the development of Hospitality Financial Management Practice eBook
HOSPA – the Hospitality Finance, Revenue Management, Asset Management, Marketing and IT Professionals Association – is delighted to announce that it has successfully secured a grant from the Savoy Educational Trust, with additional investment from HOSPA, to develop an eBook in Hospitality Financial Management Practice.
The guide is set to focus on the key principles that characterise the practice of management accounting in the industry.
With hospitality witnessing an increase in accounting professionals entering the sector from other industries, the guide will serve as a support tool for their induction and onboarding, helping to familiarise them with the specifics of the sector. Particular guidance will focus on the report formats and the performance measures commonly used, which are based on the recommendations of the Uniform System of Accounts for the Lodging Industry.
This follows in the footsteps of the highly acclaimed HOSPA Revenue Management eBook, also funded by the Savoy Educational Trust, which has been used extensively by practitioners and academics following its launch in 2012. The funding will be used to:
· Develop the eBook content which will be freely available to the sector via the HOSPA website
· Provide a tutors’ resource for use in the hospitality education sector in universities, colleges and schools
· Include content relating to careers and professional development as well as financial material
Commenting on the Savoy Educational Trust award, HOSPA Head of Professional Development Debra Adams said: “We are greatly indebted to the Savoy Educational Trust for their generosity in supporting HOSPA’s determination to provide leading edge resources to underpin these niche areas in the hospitality industry. Our aim is to not only provide a resource for the sector but to widen the access of the eBook and the work of HOSPA to a more diverse audience across the hospitality industry. Additionally, we hope that this resource will prove useful to the world of hospitality education with the inclusion of examples and scenarios to be used in teaching.”
