Running a restaurant is not an easy sail! Between managing the foods and drinks inventory, arranging promotions and special events, dealing with customers’ demands, and a myriad of other routine or unexpected daily tasks, managers are left with little time to even want to think about dealing with restaurant staff scheduling.
Restaurant scheduling of emploees’ shifts tends to be a daunting task that adds another layer of complexity to a manager’s already full-time job. To make matters even more difficult, there usually isn’t just one but multiple positions each consisting of numerous employees. And shifts for each one of these positions needs to be generated based on their own set of requirements.
Traditional employee scheduling models, which mainly rely on pen and paper or excel restaurant scheduling templates provide little to no efficacy when it comes to shift scheduling. Not only do managers have to consider staffing needs based on the budget and anticipated workload, they generally need to sift through numerous emails or paper notes in order to take into account the employee’s availabilities and special requests. Such redundant and ineffective processes tend to lead to numerous human errors and miscommunications that waste resources and increase operational costs.
As an online restaurant employee scheduling software, ShiftCrew operates in real-time and automates many of the tasks associated with staff management. Staff are provided with tools that allow them to submit their availabilities and requests instantly and in a more timely fashion through the system, instead of using emails or paper notes. This streamlines the process of workplace communication and allows managers to be more considerate of staff’s requests. In turn, employees who see that their demands are more respected, tend to perform with a much higher morale and work ethics.
