Courtesy of Hyatt Hotels

    The Chicago-based hotel company puts a higher-than-usual emphasis on senior leadership communication efforts, with digital and in-person channels that stress principles like authenticity, transparency and vulnerability. Employees notice: “I feel this company and more specifically this hotel are led superbly from the top,” says one; says another: “Coming to work feels like visiting family and helping out friends.” Generous bonuses and unique benefits help, too, like a bridge of service for returning employees that honors their original hire date and, for housekeepers, the option to leave early if they finish their rooms or clean additional rooms to earn more money.
