Ensure employees across hotel locations are on the same page
When an important organization-wide change is on the horizon, you can deliver the news to employees around your company through a Skype for Business Meeting Broadcast. You can deliver virtual conferences with full voice and HD video for up to 10,000 attendees, who can join from anywhere, and on almost any device. Add features to the session to encourage attendee participation, like Microsoft Pulse - where organizers like you can field questions about how the Broadcast is going. Finally, if some of your employees can't attend, you can record the session and share it to bring them up to speed.
After the Broadcast, you can make important company information - as well as the session recording - available to all of your attendees in a SharePoint portal. Businesses use SharePoint sites as a secure place to store, organize, share, and access information, from almost any device. Set up a site for your employees so you can share a central library to store and communicate your company announcements. Then, from any web browser, anyone who couldn't attend the Broadcast can access these resources.
To keep the conversation alive after the announcement, you can engage your employees in Yammer. Yammer is an enterprise social network where coworkers share information across teams, and organize around projects. Only your coworkers can join, so your communications are secure and visible only to people within your organization.
When you create a new Group in Yammer, you can choose to make it public and engage with coworkers across your organization, or private, to communicate just with your team.
You can continue to engage regularly with your workforce with attractive newsletters using Sway. Sway is an app from Microsoft Office that makes it easy to create and share interactive reports, newsletters, and presentations. Start by adding your own text and pictures, search for and import relevant content from other sources, and showcase new company updates and information in modern, interactive, and attention-getting ways.
