Transcript executive changes and training: In February 1962, Fritz B. Burns, of Los Angeles, was elected a director of Hilton Hotels Corporation. Mr. Burns is president and director of Fritz B. Burns and Associates and a number of real estate developments that include homes, shopping centers, office buildings, apartments and hotels. Four new vice presidents were elected during the year, all of whom are general managers of major hotels. They are Robert A. Groves, The Beverly Hilton; Herbert C. Blunck, the Washington Statler Hilton; Joseph A. Harper, the Dallas Statler Hilton and Porter P Parris, The Shamrock Hilton. J. Bryan Gordon was elected a vice president of Hilton Inns, Inc. and placed in charge of this subsidiary's operations. James J. Roche, Jr. was named an assistant vice president of Hilton Hotels Corporation with prime responsibilities for the coordination of personnel and training activities. We have projected the number of key personnel who will be needed to fill vacancies created by expansion in the number of hotels and by normal attrition. The success of a hotel is dependent upon having a number of trained experienced key personnel and we are taking steps to assure the availability of such persons. A program has been developed to select and evaluate employees, to determine those who currently are qualified for promotion, and to outline the additional training needed to qualify others for promotion. An individualized program is devised for each employee selected for further training. After consultation with the training director, he takes specific courses of study and is rotated to other positions which will give him the added knowledge and experience he requires. The goal of the Executive Development Program is to have a qualified man in each key position as well as a qualified replacement for each. employee relations: Employees at every level are assisted in their career planning through transfers between departments and between hotels, home and group study courses and on-the-job training. Benefits include a pension plan, a group plan for hospital, surgical and medical insurance for domestic employees and assistance to certain qualified employees in paying for supplementary life insurance. Excellent employer-employee relations were maintained throughout the year. Management acknowledges that the 30,000 men and women of the Hilton organization performed with distinction and commends them for their fine service, loyalty and cooperation. 20 Cuisine for guests is a fine art in every Hilton Hotel and Inn Every Hilton employee is a trained specialist in one important phase of guest service
