How to Roll Out Beekeeper’s Collaboration Software to Your Hotel Team Like a Pro

As a hotel manager, you know that company culture, employee engagement, and a solid internal communications strategy are crucial components of creating the ultimate employee experience.

As hotels begin to recover from the deep impacts of the pandemic, they’ll have to contend with the labor shortages that previously ravaged the hospitality industry. Recruiting, training, and retaining top talent will be more important than ever.

Your frontline hotel employees are the face of your hospitality brand. They make the first impression on a guest and leave a lasting memory as your customer walks out the door. Having a rockstar frontline hotel team is absolutely essential to ensure a five-star guest experience.

So how exactly do you build a motivated, enthusiastic, and highly productive frontline workforce in your hotel?

Optimize Your Hotel Operations with Beekeeper Collaboration Software

So you’ve decided to scale up your internal communications with Beekeeper (great decision btw). But where should you start? How can you make sure that your investment pays off and your team loves their new digital workplace?

At this point you probably have lots of questions. How long will this take? Will my team really use it? How do you even set goals for employee engagement? What’s the meaning of life?

Ok, so we may not be able to help with that last one. But for any and all non-existential life questions, and especially ones about employee communication, we’ve got you covered.

Convincing The Beekeeper Non-Believer

This is NOT our first rodeo. We’ve helped hotels all over the world roll out Beekeeper, and we’ve come to know and love that one non-believer in the room.

Maybe it’s a maintenance worker who “doesn’t do all that technology.” Or perhaps it’s a night manager who thinks this is just a glorified social media platform. Or maybe it’s a soft-spoken housekeeper who might be worried that her English isn’t good enough to communicate well with her co-workers on the app. (BTW, that’s why we have an inline translation feature).

Our Customer Success Team is highly experienced at converting a Beekeeper non-believer. Once they see what it’s like to work a shift with Beekeeper in their back pocket, they’ll never want to go back.

When we rolled it out to our team, people were openly skeptical. They said, ‘It’s gonna eat my data. I don’t want social media. I don’t want Facebook.’ But now all of a sudden they have a platform to market their department. I couldn’t be happier. I think it was a genius move. We were all a bit nervous about the roll out, but with Beekeeper’s support it all came together. I can tell that everyone is communicating more openly now.
