"It's truly an honor to be recognized by these industry leaders as having the most innovative hotel technology," said Connie Rheams, Beekeeper VP of Hospitality. "Beekeeper's goal is to help hoteliers improve employee interaction, which in turn cultivates heightens guest engagement. When employees feel part of the hotel family they forge relationships, making it more difficult for them to leave.
"Beekeeper is designed to engage non-desk workers in a modern way who typically do not have an email address," she added. "It gives them a voice, breaks down silos between departments, recognizes them for doing an outstanding job, creates loyalty, and drives job retention. The happier employees are at their jobs, the more guest loyalty and satisfaction scores improve. Earning this award at HX validates that the industry is in real need of a digital transformation."
