Employees of Boston’s Four Seasons Hotel get employee news via an in-house, co-worker-produced newscast.
Every two weeks, employees put together a 10-minute show that airs on TV sets in staff areas. The broadcasts usually include interviews with employees from a different department each time.
Employees rotate as “anchors” who conduct the interviews as a sales coordinator videotapes. The public relations director writes the script, and other employees edit the tape and insert music.
“Experience News” has featured a hotel chef delivering turkeys to a local food bank, a Haitian doorman recounting a trip to his homeland after the 2010 earthquake there and introductions to each member of the maintenance staff.
There was also a primer on perks the hotel offers its guests—like an ice cream sundae cart that can be ordered via room service.
