Balance Employee Workload

You hired your staff to help run your restaurant, but how balanced is the employee workload? With our data analysis, you can determine if responsibilities are spread evenly across all servers and kitchen staff, as well as front-of-house staff, or if a select group is handling the bulk of the work. Getting the most out of all your staff is key to increasing employee engagement and maximizing productivity in your establishment.

Optimize Employee Training

When new hires start at your restaurant, they likely go through a basic training program that familiarizes them with how your business operates. However, there might be opportunities for better training and instruction, even if it’s just a few more details on how things are done in your restaurant.

As an experienced restaurant owner knows, optimal labour cost percentage is a result to strive for, not a strategy to employ. Revamping your employee training programs is a far more effective and sustainable way to optimize labour cost percentages than increasing prices or cutting staff.

Update Your Restaurant Layout & Seating Strategies

Is your restaurant’s dining room set up for success during all hours of operation? There could be opportunities to update your layout so there are fewer congested areas and more efficient routes for your servers.

In addition, restaurant owners should regularly evaluate their seating charts and hostess strategies to find areas for improvement. Are your hostesses seating parties of two at all available two-tops before using a table that could seat four guests? Is your staff providing guests with accurate wait times, or are inflated estimates scaring off potential customers? Working with a restaurant consultant can help streamline these critical areas of your business.

Better Inventory Management

It’s important to stock the ingredients you need for your most popular dishes, but when was the last time you reviewed your restaurant inventory? By identifying what items you need and where you can combat rising costs, you can help boost your restaurant’s productivity and make your inventory more cost-effective. The team at Benchmark Sixty can light the way with our comprehensive restaurant consulting services.
