Abstract:Research into the careers and salaries of financial controllers in the hospitality industry has shown continuing discrepancies between men and women. Analysis of the results of a survey indicates that the assumption that differentials are based purely on gender are somewhat simplistic and that it is in the nature of the work that men and women perform that the real reasons emerge. Women and men appear in general to undertake different types of job within hospitality financial management, those with higher status and hence pay being more likely to be held by men. Occupational segregation and educational level emerge as being major factors although ongoing social attitudes towards women’s employment have limited their progress. It is essential for these attitudes to change if the hospitality industry is to optimise the use of all skilled and trained financial managers to the benefit of the business.
