Now that economic data shows the recession is ending, restaurateurs can look forward to brisker business. But with more customers comes the need for more staffing, and managing the additional employees and coordinating schedules in an improved but still uncertain environment presents its own set of challenges.
Fortunately, workforce management software can help operators predict the demand for staffing, help hire the best candidates, make scheduling more efficient and automate many scheduling-related tasks.
Speakers Jeff Maier and Dan Nottingham of Kronos and Hema Narayanan of Au Bon Pain will discuss how workforce management solutions offer the following:
- Allow more accurate planning for busy times
- Predict surges or lulls in business by analyzing past activity and current trends
- Indicate the best combination of hourly rate and skill set for employees
- Identify employees who abuse the clock
They will also discuss how Au Bon Pain has used workforce management solutions to streamline operations.
