Inspire 925 Kickstarts Digital Employee Community Across Switzerland  

The hotel chain Swissôtel engaged Inspire 925 to design and implement an employee engagement project to connect their employees across hotel sites in Switzerland via the Beekeeper app. Their objective was to boost employee engagement through improved internal communication, closer connection and stronger collaboration throughout the organization. 

The project in Switzerland inspired a global roll-out. Today, Beekeeper is used in Swissôtel Hotels and Resorts and its sister company Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Raffles Hotels & Resorts. Together they form FRHI Group, a global hotel management company that boasts more than 125 hotels and branded residential offerings in 35 countries with 50,000 employees. In 2015 FRHI was awarded for this project the North American Employee Engagement Award in the category internal communications.

About Our Client

Swissôtel Hotels & Resorts got its start in Switzerland, a country known for big mountains and equally high standards of living. Its contemporary Swiss style and locally inspired flair attracts business and leisure travelers who enjoy high-end hotels but prefer fresh innovation to stale pretension. Conveniently located where travelers want to be, Swissôtel provides guests with the opportunity to stay in the heart of city centers worldwide where access to business and shopping districts are right around the corner. With two new resorts in Sochi, Russia, where the 2014 Winter Olympics took place, Swissôtels can be found in over 30 well-located properties around the world. As guests of the world, every Swissôtel upholds Swiss sustainability standards. In fact, Swissôtel has a mission: to treat guests, team members, and the environment with equal respect. While Swissôtel is owned by FRHI Hotels & Resorts, a leading global hotel company under the Fairmont, Raffles, and Swissôtel brands, just like the country it was founded in, it remains a small hotel at heart.
