Staffing Guide In Housekeeping department

proper staffing is the most in any hotel . 
  • We always need 1 Executive Housekeeper for a hotel with 300 room property. 
  • We need 2 assistant Housekeeping manager which we need 1 per morning and 1 per evening.
  • Floor supervisor are needed 2 per 60 room for morning shift , 1 for evening shift .
  • Linen uniform room supervisor we need 1
  • Room attendant 1 per 16 room
Now if I have hotel with 300 rooms and standard time to clean each room is 20 minutes ( my attendants efficiency)

At 100 % occupancy, room to clean tomorrow will be 300 * 1 = 300

Our GRA works 8 hours day and take 20 minutes to complete 1 room 

In 8 hours there are 60*8 =  480 minutes 

So 480/20 will be number of room cleans by 1 GRA in 1 day which will be 24 rooms

Now to complete 300 room if 1 GRA Attends 24 room , 300/24 = 12 GRA are needed.

We can schedule 12 + 3 GRA = 15 The next day , +3 is my rule of thumb for smooth operation. 

Let's take another example,

If my hotel total room are 200 and it is at 50% occupancy . My  employee work 8 hours a day and take 30 minutes to clean 1 room.

For next day, room to clean will be 100
My employee works 8 hour = 8 * 60 = 480 minutes.

His efficiency is 30 minutes so in 480 minutes, he can clean 480/30 of room 

It will be 16 rooms in day.
For cleaning 100 room , 100/16 = 6. 25

Assuming round figure and rule of thumb , 6 + 2 = 8 full time staff can finish.
