Hotel Effectiveness has launched Team Wellness Check-In, a new enhancement to its MyHotelTeam application, to address the safety and health concerns amid Covid-19 pandemic.

The new feature enables a safe and efficient return-to-work process by offering simple and secure, CDC-compliant self-screening process for each associate before every shift.

Managers will receive an instant alert when a team member reports a symptom through the app. They also can monitor which associates have completed each day’s check-in.

This added feature is claimed to provide associates with confidence in the health and safety of their workplace.

Guests will arrive knowing that the hotel staff is taking measures to protect them during their stay, the company noted.

The data obtained through Team Wellness Check-In are guaranteed to be private and secure.

The application does not store the health-specific responses from the associates. Additionally, reports are permission granted, and the data is claimed to be highly encrypted.

Hotel Effectiveness co-founder and CEO Mike Martin said: “The safety of hotel associates and guests is and always will be the number one priority for hotel operators.

“One way to provide a safe work environment is through clear communication. When faced with the severity of Covid-19, we quickly wanted to help our customers by developing a free health screening process as a tool in our MyHotelTeam mobile app.”

Hotel Effectiveness is a complete labour management system designed for hotels and hotel management companies.

It is claimed to be used by over 4,500 hotels to manage around $15bn in labour costs each year.
