Abstract

During the summer months of 1994, the Dick Poe Sr. Institutes for Tourism Studies at the University of Central Florida conducted a survey of Central Florida hotel properties regarding wages paid and employee benefits. The project was sponsored by the Central Florida Hotel Personnel Association and supported by the Central Florida Hotel and Motel Association. This comprehensive study solicited 293 hotels for data on wages and benefits on 118 occupational/hourly job titles and 34 management/supervisory positions. The final report, summarizing data from 32 hotels and companies was mailed to all participating properties on August 24, 1994. The Central Florida Hotel Personnel Association contracted again with the Dick Pope Sr. Institute for Tourism Studies at the University of Central Florida to perform a wage and benefit study for 1995 in a similar manner to the one done in 1994. During the months of April, May, and June of 1995, the Dick Pope Sr. Institute for Tourism Studies at the University of Central Florida conducted a survey of Central Florida hotel properties and other hospitality companies regarding wages paid and employee benefits on 112 occupational/hourly job titles and 44 management or supervisory positions. Questionnaires were mailed to 311 hotels and hospitality companies. The final report, summarizing data from 45 hotels and companies was mailed to all participating properties on June 30, 1995. During the months of May, June, and July of 1996, The Dick Pope Sr. Institute for Tourism Studies at the University of Central Florida again was retained by the Central Florida Hotel Personnel Association to conduct a survey of Central Florida hotel properties and other hospitality companies regarding wages paid and employee benefits.
