Engaging multi-lingual employees without emails is crucial for reducing turnover, boosting staff engagement, driving efficiencies and improving guest satisfaction

Visit Beekeeper in Booth 1702 and Attend the Beekeeper Breakfast with Special Guest Sixty Hotels

Next month C-level hotel executives will meet in Houston to attend HITEC, the world's largest hospitality industry technology exposition and conference. One of the hottest solutions on the market today, Beekeeper, voted the "Most Innovative Technology" for 2018 by HTNG, will showcase its simplified, secure, and easy-to-use tool that stores in one convenient location anything a worker needs to excel in their daily routine. This award-winning workplace communication app is proving to be integral for engaging multi-lingual employees without emails. Discover how to connect colleagues across locations and departments in real time and provide a secure, automated, and relevant flow of employee information that is readily distributed, searchable, and measurable in one central hub, by visiting Beekeeper in Booth 1702, June 19 to 21, at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.

"We are really excited to be bringing Beekeeper to HITEC for the very first time in the U.S.," said Connie Rheams, Beekeeper VP of Hospitality. "While today's mobile technologies are ensuring that hoteliers stay connected to guests at every touchpoint, little is being offered that focuses on the communication needs of employees. These hotel ambassadors are making the biggest difference in each guests' stay - especially employees who are on the front lines and interacting closely with guests throughout the property. Beekeeper is a tool that sends the right information to the right people who are touching the guest. Until now, it was the missing mobile link to engaging employees, reducing turnover and enabling a hotel company to become an employer of choice."

Beekeeper, named the 59th fastest-growing company by SaaS 1000, is a GDPR-compliant workplace app that digitizes hospitality workers by connecting operational systems and communication channels within one secure, intuitive platform. It brings together colleagues across locations and departments in real time via mobile or desktop devices by allowing top-down, bottom-up, and peer-to-peer communication to give every employee a voice. Secure, automated, and relevant information is readily distributed, searchable, and measurable in one central hub for an efficient digitized workflow. The platform includes an intelligent dashboard to help companies gauge the effectiveness of their internal communications to streamline business processes.

With Beekeeper, hoteliers can:

  • See what's happening throughout the day at their hotel and read what's happening in the company.
  • Keep all team members aligned and unified by sharing information that is necessary for staff to do their jobs.
  • Use the Survey feature to poll employees on their satisfaction or request input.
  • Communicate with team members during a crisis or while a property is closed.
  • Onboard new team members and engage with them even before they start on their first day.
  • Update staff on the status of engineering or housekeeping projects.
  • Enable GDPR-compliant peer-to-peer chat functionality (displacing non-GDPR compliant WhatsApp business groups)

The mobile and web app easily integrate with existing operational systems, so employees have all the tools they need at their fingertips. The custom branded interface and advanced front- and back-end features create an interactive employee experience proven to strengthen engagement, retention, productivity, and the bottom line.

Breakfast with Beekeeper at HITEC

Beekeeper is inviting hoteliers to attend a private educational breakfast at HITEC on Wednesday, June 20th, at 7:00 a.m., at the Audi Sports Club at the BBVA Compass Stadium (just 2.5 blocks from the Convention Center). During the event, Sixty Hotels will discuss the digitization of their workforce, share property updates and best practices.

Invitees will also learn about a new awards program being launched by Beekeeper in September in conjunction with Labor Day. The WorkHero Awards are designed to honor hotel employees worldwide for doing something spectacular for a guest.

"Our goal through the WorkHero Awards is honor those unsung-hero's in hospitality who labor every day to make a difference," said Corey McCarthy, Beekeeper VP of Global Marketing. "With unemployment rates the lowest they've been in several years, retaining quality employees is crucial. We want hoteliers to recognize those employees who have gone over and above their job description to do some extraordinary for their customers in hopes that it will incentivize them to cultivate their own work-hero culture. A business can't have happy customers without happy employees. It's time the hospitality industry joins in celebrating its work hero's, and Beekeeper is proud to kick off this global initiative."
