100 Best Companies Snapshot: Grand Hyatt Seattle/Seattle Olive 8

Where being accommodating comes naturally.

Steve Vissotzky, managing director of Hyatt Olive 8 and Grand Hyatt Seattle, says the hospitality leader is open around the clock. And not just for guests. “In our 24/7 business,” Vissotzky says, “our doors are always open to our guests and … to our colleagues. We have an open-door policy and colleagues are encouraged to speak to anyone at any level within the organization.”

The company holds events for employees throughout the year, inviting family and friends to join in so they “can interact with and get to know the most important people in our colleagues’ lives!” That’s not the only perk friends and family members of Hyatt employees receive. When they’re hired, employees are eligible for discounted room rates — up to 75 percent off the rack rate — at any Hyatt hotel. They can also book discounted rooms for their friends and family. And after one year of employment, Hyatt employees can use up to 12 complimentary room nights at Hyatt hotels around the world.
