Hospitality continues as one of the world’s most dynamic and growing industries. In the U.S., hospitality-related jobs employ 8.6 percent of the overall workforce (based on May 3, 2013, Bureau of Labor Statistics), and 29,000 jobs are being added each month. According to the World Trade Organization, industry growth is expected to triple by 2020. If that growth is realized, the hospitality profession would become one of the largest employers around the globe.
