Last week, the winners of the 2017 Employee Engagement Awards were announced at the North American Employee Engagement Conference in Chicago. And, drum roll please:…
Leonardo Hotels employs a wide range of frontline workers, from front desk to housekeeping to on-site dining teams. A great guest experience relies not only on efficiency within the organization’s management, but also on motivated and well-informed employees. Efficient internal communication plays a major role in the smooth operation of a hotel property. Nevertheless reaching employees, especially those whose work is not desk-based, can be especially challenging in the hospitality industry.
Interested in a mobile communication solution, Leonardo Hotels adopted Beekeeper, an employee app designed expressly for connecting dispersed workforces across locations, shifts, and departments. With Beekeeper, Leonardo Hotels is able to provide each individual employee with real-time operational communication. Having mobile access to the resources and information they need to do their jobs better and more efficiently has led to gains in employee retention.
Informed employees feel more valued, are more aligned with their company, and are more committed. This is an idea that Anke Maas, HR Director Europe at Leonardo Hotels, emphasizes: "Our job as an HR department is to give employees a strong and trusting sense of belonging to Leonardo hotels and to show them that they are an important part of the company."
"Beekeeper makes our internal communication extremely easy. The feedback from our employees and the results we achieve are very positive. This is illustrated by the high level of activity that we see on the platform. That's why we did not hesitate for a moment to sign up for the award." –Anke Maas, HR Director, Europe, Leonardo Hotels
Beekeeper is proud to help Leonardo Hotels reach and engage every single hotel employee, and congratulates the organization on their nomination and win!
