SAN FRANCISCO, CA OCTOBER 17, 2017 - Digital workplace app Beekeeper today announced that registration is open for its inaugural webinar course, Bee School. Beekeeper’s Bee School initiative brings knowledge on workplace dynamics and behavior out from behind the paywall of an MBA certificate, ensuring that managers in non-desk industries can lead their teams to unprecedented success.
The weekly 45 minute sessions will commence November 7, led by Dr. Linda Herkenhoff of St. Mary’s College of California. Over the span of six weeks, course participants will gain valuable insights on how to keep employees motivated and engaged at work, as well as how to build and navigate inclusive work cultures.
The launch of Bee School marks an important extension of Beekeeper’s mission to pave the future of work for employees at all levels, empowering managers to be better leaders and arm non-desk workers with the tools they need to thrive in the face of rapidly emerging technology.
Complementary to Dr. Herkenhoff’s Bee School curriculum, Beekeeper’s flagship workplace app helps address the unique team dynamics that managers of non-desk workforces face every single day. For employees working on the front lines who may have intermittent access to technology throughout the day, having a manager armed with the right communication practices steeped in behavior science training becomes mission critical.
Enrollment instructions and a week-by-week curriculum breakdown is available on Beekeeper’s website.
