Transcript A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT: What About This Business of Social Responsibility? The National Rehabilitation Association has honored Marriott Corporation with its 1973 Organizational Award for our record in employing the physically and mentally handicapped. We have had a practice of hiring the handicapped for many years. They are very good workers . . . very loyal workers. With us they get equal pay, equal benefits, and a lot of understanding. Many have had richer lives for years because we welcome them. We understand Marriott is the first corporation to earn the NRA award. We're very proud. Which brings up the subject of corporate social responsibility. You read quite a bit about this today. It's time, I think, we speak out, too. We've had a story to tell about profit growth, new investment, new jobs created, more taxes paid, etc. The business purists say this is social responsibility. And of course it is. But we run a little deeper at this company. There's more to us than those results at the bottom line. Let me tell you about a few things ... • We created our own advancement program tailored essentially to lower-ranked employees, and have now moved more than 2,100 people, mostly minorities, upward into more challenging, better- paying positions—many into management. • Minorities today make up a relatively high 13% of our management. • Women have an expanding role in our management too—they now comprise 14% of our supervisory and professional category. • All entries in our management training program spend 40% of their class time on "The Real Issues"—our own course stressing sensitivity to minority groups. • Policing the nutritional value of the food we serve is the full-time job of our Vice President for Food Standards and her staff, who know about profits but give it to us straight about food quality too. • Citations were awarded us this year for our beau- tification efforts at the Philadelphia and Miami Marriott Hotels and our Joshua Tree Restaurant in McLean, Virginia—the latest in civic honors for that extra measure of attention we give to environmental impact. • Special recognition has come our way as one of the first companies to shift deposits into several minority-owned banks trying to get a foothold and needing only a little encouragement from business. Is this what they mean by "social responsibility?" Is the good of the people in focus when we bring construction of a Big Boy Restaurant to a costly halt so that a Little League has a place to hold its carnival . . . when we make employee safety so vital that one of our units this year sets the National Safety Council "World Record for the Eating and Drinking Places Industry" . . . when we contribute executives for job counseling of Viet Nam veterans and for finding summer jobs for disadvantaged youth? I could go on. There is much more to tell. But I'm sure you get the point. Now we don't think for a minute we're solving—or even working on—all the pressing needs of society. Who is? Nor do we hold ourselves up as the most public- spirited enterprise in America. Many other companies are doing so much more. Frankly, we keep asking ourselves if we shouldn't be doing more too. But Marriott Corporation hasn't just been standing around either, saying "Somebody do something!" We've been doing something. And I think shareholders should know that there are individuals and groups who are a little better off today —in their own particular way—not only because your company exists and prospers, but because it cares and shares. J. W. Marriott, Jr. 20
