    Senior leaders at Four Seasons hotels know that night staff often miss out on town halls or department meetings in the daytime. To make sure everyone is kept in the loop, management organizes “night-owl breakfasts” in the early-morning hours to provide a point of contact for after-hours workers. “The sense of welcome and community is definitely unlike any other workplace I’ve known,” says one employee. That’s not surprising, given that Four Seasons has been on the 100 Best Companies list for an impressive 23 years now.
