Communications, Change Management and Employee Engagement in one single tool

What do you like best?

With Beekeeper we were able to connect our employees in the department stores. Most of them have no corporate e-mail address and no access to the intranet and have literally been excluded of the communication process. The intuitive interface allowed them to quickly become part of the community.

What do you dislike?

I'd like to have more text editing features and sometimes I'd like to be informed more quickly if they have bugs after a new release.

In general Beekeeper is a fantastic partner, always listening to their customers and providing an excellent customer support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Beekeeper helped us solving 3 problems.

- Communications: finally the whole company is connected and better informed

- Employee Engagement: Beekeeper helps us to change our company culture from a hierarchical top-down approach towards a culture of dialogue and collaboration.

- Change management: Beekeeper helps us to prepare our staff better for the digital transformation and overcoming people's fear of other digital tools.

Excellent communication tool with top support

What do you like best?

The tool is attractive and user friendly and efficient for conveying information, while at the same time fostering exchange and interaction between members. The tool allows for a lot of flexibility and have great bonus features such as the slideshow functionality.

We receive regular updates about new features added in the tool and get support to get started. I have also taken part in an experience exchange with other customers organized by Beekeeper to get ideas for how to get the most out of the tool. Whenever we have questions or experience any issues, the Beekeeper team is very responsive and have always helped us to resolve any issues in a timely manner.

I have followed the Beekeeper webinar series with big interest and profited from many interesting insights that have positively impacted the daily work.

It is a pleasure to use the tool and to deal with the team at Beekeeper!

What do you dislike?

When I type a url in a post a thumbnail with the link is created (great!), but when I erase the url the thumbnail goes away. It would be nice if the thumbnail could stay without the url. The thumbnail could be deleted manually if desired.

Finally connecting the unconnected

What do you like best?

Beekeeper enabled us to accurately target and measure our internal communication. We are able to directly communicate with all our employees for the first time and don't have to rely on local managers anymore to relay important messages to their employees.

What do you dislike?

Beekeeper is a fantastic partner and works proactively to minimize any problems for their customers. As they are rapidly expanding and always adding new features, there have been a few short downtimes, although never anything major.

Trash those notice boards!

What do you like best?

Beekeeper enables us to set up our internal communication and dialogue in a modern way that appeals to colleagues of all generations

What do you dislike?

Nothing I can think of.... If I could change one thing, then it would be the title of the stream that is now written all over the key visual. I'd like the key visual to be seen without the text on it, the caption can be underneath or in a corner of the picture. This is only a small detail that annoys me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get the buy-in from your top and middle management. Use involvement campaigns to get it started.

Continuously post news.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We see more engagement from our colleagues that work in one of our 25 units spread over the world - we get to hear more about successful customer installations, pictures from laundries and concerns from the local teams. It is a great, modern, fast way of being in touch with our colleagues.

An engaging platform for front line staff

What do you like best?

It's intuitive, pretty easy to use. It's great to be able to have store documents available and links for staff to reference. I think it's also good for staff to not only have access to a great deal of communication so that their awareness is increased, but also for them to feel rewarded for engaging by the "likes" of their peers.

What do you dislike?

It'd be cool if we could have documents show up according to someone's login. For example, we have overarching store documents that everyone needs access to, but there are departmental manuals that not everyone needs access to and which would only clutter things up if we put them on there for everyone.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're early into this process yet but it seems like it's a way for staff to feel included and more in-the-know about what's going on. The information was out there before, but not in a way that many people took advantage of, and I think it was because it was disorganized and not engaging. This helps change that.

Great tool for driving employee engagement!

What do you like best?

I love that Beekeeper can easily connect all employees in a business with over 800 staff members. Communication is easy and we are able to reach users who work different shifts at any time. We are able to share photos, promotions and features of the business through this app, as opposed to receiving so many emails. We have recently started to implement the Survey function which we aim to use for Learning and Development and are really excited with the information that Beekeeper can provide for us. We can see that our teams like to use the app too, many employees who wouldn't normally have a "voice" can promote their department and celebrate their achievements. As a Group, we had a regional workshop in which all properties were invited to share photos, stories and celebrations which was delightful to see since we don't always connect with the other properties. Beekeeper gives us a more personal opportunity to connect with our staff and employees which email and phone calls cannot do. Further, it provides a much better control than a social media platform would so it is very ideal for business communication. Lastly, we have been using an "Innovate" steam where colleagues are encouraged to pitch benefiting ideas to Senior Management and they can get rewarded.

What do you dislike?

Nothing. Looking forward to further innovations!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. Learning and Development- We are testing the Survey function to "quiz" employees on their understanding of training topics. This can either be an alternative to classroom training or reinforced after classroom training- which can save a lot of time (and paper) for the Trainers and employees.

2. Employee Recognition- For those employees who may not pass a physical board where we show off photos, we can still publicly recognize them for their contributions or awards received. The feature that other colleagues, department leaders and managers can also "like" and comment to congratulate increases the amount of recognition.

3. Increased knowledge about other departments/team spirit- Through email it is quite difficult to promote a special menu because it's just text. However, with Beekeeper, we are able to show photos as well as text. This creates lots of excitement among the teams as we can visualize it and describe in detail to our customers. Our employees tend to congratulate the other employees when they post these.

4. Innovation- We implemented a reward program for employees to provide ideas that benefit the business, their department, themselves or any other area. The Senior Management reviews the idea and if it can be implemented, the employee will receive an award. We have implemented 2-3 ideas in some aspect already.
