    What does orientation look like for new employees at Hyatt? Jumping on beds, wearing slippers, and tasting dishes from the company’s restaurant kitchens, just as a guest might do. It’s all part of Hyatt’s plan to cultivate a culture of empathy and care, which employees say makes them “feel inspired to work here.” The hotel chain also has a track record of promoting internally at a rate of 30%, and Hyatt recently committed to hiring 10,000 “opportunity youth”—people ages 16 to 24 lacking employment or education—by 2025.
