InTown Suites Partners with Beekeeper to Reach All Employees


ATLANTA, March 19, 2019 — InTown Suites launches an internal communication platform using the No. 1 employee communication app, Beekeeper. The app was designed to be a culture building tool to mimic today’s social platforms. Employees are encouraged to post content, upload images, and even create polls for instant feedback.

The platform empowers more than 1,500 employees to communicate effectively in one centralized system. Gone are the days of emails. Today’s preferred method of communication is short snippets or “Chirps” for this brand with birds in its logo.

InTown Suites’ Director of Marketing, Virginia Swords, stated “This partnership was created to help build the culture for InTown Suites. Chirps is easy-to-use and creates a space where all employees can connect and share the small gestures they do daily to make a big impact on our guests’ lives. We are excited to see how this tool transforms our internal communication.”

Connie Rheams, Beekeeper VP of Hospitality said “Our operational communications platform is enabling InTown Suites employees’ personalities to come alive,” Rheams said. “It gives them a sense of pride in their jobs, a voice among the organization, and a sense of belonging to an extended family. Beekeeper provides high-quality, engaging tools for internal communications that have been lacking for so long in today’s operational communications. This platform provides a single-hub that ensures employer/employee engagement, makes employees happy, and keeps them wanting to come to work day after day.”
