SAN FRANCISCO—On Wednesday, Beekeeper, a mobile-first communication platform for frontline workers, will host a webinar discussing how to prepare for and handle a crisis, from connecting your employees to communicating effectively. Moderator Andrada Paraschiv, Beekeeper head of hospitality and former executive director of communications and strategy of FRHI Hotels & Resorts (Fairmont, Raffles and Swissôtel), will lead Christy Shapard, vice president of human resources for North Point Hospitality, and Heather Goins, human resources information systems analyst for InTown Suites, in a best practices discussion about communicating and connecting within your organization during COVID-19.
“Due to this pandemic, hotels are closing, employees are staying home and there is no way of keeping in touch with them; for the hotels continuing operations, policy and process changes have to be communicated ASAP. When things begin to improve, it’s especially important to be able to communicate reopening and return-to-work plans,” Paraschiv said.
“We are also extending the free trial period of Beekeeper for hotels from 14 days to the end of June 2020 so hoteliers can effectively reach their employees when it matters most,” she said. “It takes very little set up, and management can start communicating with their frontline employees within hours. We have been and will continue to be partners in the industry and are confident that we will come back from this stronger together.”
