USA, Park City, Utah. November 01, 2018

Waldorf Astoria Park City is proud to announce it has received several of the world's top travel awards - 'Best Spa in North America' from The World Spa Awards and 'Top Ten Resorts in the West' from Conde Nast Travelers' Readers' Choice Awards. Both highly coveted accolades invoke recognition of the hotel's consistent dedication to the highest levels of service and guest experience.

Spa tourism's highest accolade, the World Spa Awards serve as the definitive benchmark of excellence. The Waldorf Astoria Park City Spa was awarded the top honor in all of North America, having received the most votes out of any spa in the continent. This is the first year a Utah spa has ever made the award nominations at any level. Votes for the award were cast by leading spa and wellness tourism professionals, as well as hundreds of thousands of spa consumers from across the globe. The award was presented at the 4th Annual World Spa Awards Gala Ceremony at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort on October 26, 2018.

"Being named The Best Hotel Spa in the United States for 2018 in the World Spa Awards is a huge and humbling honor," said Amy Mullen, Director of the Waldorf Astoria Park City. "We work tirelessly to deliver an extraordinary spa experience for our guests, and this accolade is a testament to our wonderful team's dedication, attention to detail and passion."

The hotel's 16,000-square-foot spa includes 15 treatment rooms featuring signature treatments, a custom-designed fitness center as well as a full-service hair and nail salon. The facility is dedicated to fostering a balance of mind, body and spirit through a personalized program that draws on local products, environmental inspiration and contemporary techniques. In 2019, the spa will also finalize renovations to its fitness center, which will look out over the beautiful pool deck with views of the surrounding mountains.

Additionally, the Conde Nast Traveler Reader's Choice Award is one of the world's most important and coveted hospitality awards. Waldorf Astoria Park City was awarded 'Top 10 best resorts in the U.S. West,' a distinction granted by the hundreds of thousands of readers who vote in each year's contest. The Readers' Choice Awards have been announced online, and were celebrated in the November issue.

Seamlessly blending an iconic brand legacy with a modern mountain feel, Waldorf Astoria Park City is the sophisticated traveler's gateway to Park City, Utah. Guests of the resort enjoy crisp alpine air, unparalleled views of the Wasatch Mountain Range, luxurious finishes, thoughtful service and year-round adventures.

Human Resources: An Era of Transition

Traditionally, the human resource department administers five key areas within a hotel operation - compliance, compensation and benefits, organizational dynamics, selection and retention, and training and development. However, HR professionals are also presently involved in culture-building activities, as well as implementing new employee on-boarding practices and engagement initiatives. As a result, HR professionals have been elevated to senior leadership status, creating value and profit within their organization. Still, they continue to face some intractable issues, including a shrinking talent pool and the need to recruit top-notch employees who are empowered to provide outstanding customer service. In order to attract top-tier talent, one option is to take advantage of recruitment opportunities offered through colleges and universities, especially if they have a hospitality major. This pool of prospective employees is likely to be better educated and more enthusiastic than walk-in hires. Also, once hired, there could be additional training and development opportunities that stem from an association with a college or university. Continuing education courses, business conferences, seminars and online instruction - all can be a valuable source of employee development opportunities. In addition to meeting recruitment demands in the present, HR professionals must also be forward-thinking, anticipating the skills that will be needed in the future to meet guest expectations. One such skill that is becoming increasingly valued is “resilience”, the ability to “go with the flow” and not become overwhelmed by the disruptive influences  of change and reinvention. In an era of transition—new technologies, expanding markets, consolidation of brands and businesses, and modifications in people's values and lifestyles - the capacity to remain flexible, nimble and resilient is a valuable skill to possess. The March Hotel Business Review will examine some of the strategies that HR professionals are employing to ensure that their hotel operations continue to thrive.
