The hospitality industry has been hit especially hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. With 70% of hotel employees laid off or furloughed, hotel workers are losing more than $2.4 billion in earnings each week.
Fortunately, the curve is very slowly starting to flatten. States are beginning to lift shelter-in-place orders and hotels are looking at how they will reopen.

- Reach all employees instantly and help you deliver a consistent message to your team
- Connect with workers who may not have a valid phone number or email on file
- Enable quick training on new processes, SOP updates, and communicate policy changes
"Our usage of Beekeeper is the best it’s ever been. We initiated our crisis management team and communications plan which relied heavily on Beekeeper. I don’t know how we’d keep up with employee messaging during COVID-19. It has been changing so quickly!"
