Transcript ing the last two years a total of $10,482,961 has been spent on your properties. These combined expenditures represent an average of $708 per room for the past two years. Because so much has been accomplished in making up for previously deferred repairs and maintenance your directors, acting prudently, have adopted a lower budget for such expenses during 1949. OPERATING METHODS Hilton Hotels continue to lead in the adaptation of business and industrial methods to hotel operation. Time and method studies have been carried out to a great extent in all phases of hotel operation. Pre-costing system for the food and beverage department was adopted with great success in the Stevens Hotel in Chicago and is now being extended to the Palmer House and other units of the Hilton group. Consolidation of operating functions between the Stevens and Palmer House is being continued as expeditiously as possible. The contract made in December, 1947 with Marshall Field and Company to act as purchasing agent for Hilton Hotels Corporation for the purchase of a large portion of our equipment and supplies has proved eminently satisfactory and has resulted in substantial savings. PERSONNEL As of December 31st, 1948, your corporation had approximately 7,067 employees. Payroll and related expenses, such as Federal retirement and unemployment taxes, workmen's compensation, insurance, etc., amounted to $16,075,868. The table below indicates the comparisons for the last three years. No effect is given to the partially owned and managed hotels. Relations between your corporation and its employees continued harmonious. Our employee The Rendez-Vous of The Plaza group insurance plan has proved popular and during the year Blue Cross hospitalization was made available to all employees. All existing labor contracts were successfully re-negotiated but with upward revisions in rates. A training program for supervisors was instituted at the Stevens and Palmer House with splendid results and training courses conducted for maids and telephone operators. Eleven qualified department heads were sent to Houston, Texas, to attend the summer hotel training school conducted by the Texas Hotel Association. The management wishes to take this opportunity to extend its appreciation for the loyal effort and co-operation of its employees without whose help it would have been impossible to have accomplished the results we achieved in 1948. 11
