Students of the I and II year visited hotel Hilton in Podgorica. The general manager Mr. Nemanja Nikolić gave a short lecture and introduced students about the organization, content and details related to the hotel's business. After the visit students shared their perceptions, impressions and comments with us:
"Today's lecture at the Hilton hotel proved as very useful for me and my colleagues. Mr. Nemanja Nikolic helped us to understand better our profession, to prepare for some of the challenges we will encounter as managers and familiarize ourselves with the organizational structure of Hilton Hotel and its premises. Getting first-hand information has enabled us to form a more realistic vision of our future and to familiarize ourselves with the sectors of hotel business and employee functions. Also, the visit of the hotel has expanded our knowledge of Human resources management sector through examples of the hotel Hilton action plan how to increase productivity and reduce the number of employees. I am grateful for this opportunity and I hope for more frequent visits to hotels and similar lectures."

The visit was very interesting but I liked the most lecture by the Mister Nemanja Nikolic who explained us the employment process and which kind of contracts are used at hotel Hilton. Especially interesting was the tour through the staff rooms,Wellness and SPA center, presidential suite and Sky bar.

Today's visit to the Hilton hotel left a very deep impression on us. First of all, it was an honor to visit and get acquainted with almost all the parts of one of the most luxurious hotel in Montenegro, as well as, listening the speech of the first Montenegrin general manager in this position at the prestigious hotel chain Hilton. We are proud on the fact that in our country there is one such of hotel. Like all hotels from this hotel chain hotel Hilton Podgorica has been operating successfully for 100 years, it has five stars and offers 180 luxury rooms. The value of the hotel is estimated at 40 million euros which is proven by the ambiance even at the entrance. Our expectations are fulfilled. The organizational structure is very good as all the professional staff. We think that for a successful business it is necessary to have a good team and this hotel definitely has it.What we could notice is that their main common feature is commitment and desire for further advancement which is one of the main keys to success. Managing with such this kind of hotel is not an easy task, but it is definitely represents a great satisfaction.
