With the world being hit hard by the unfortunate pandemic, one group among the adversely affected is the business world. And among the business industry, the ones who truly suffer are individuals from the hospitality industry. As the pandemic progressed over the year, and the world witnessed staying at home with lockdowns and curfews, the hospitality industry was hit hard, with nobody going out to eat. 

As restaurants and cafes continue collecting dust, restaurant owners are desperately looking for ways to cut down costs and at least, meet break-even. In addition to that, the never-ending surge of inflation does not seem to help either. To make the bare minimum and avoid going out of business, restaurants, and cafes are seen stumbling in the dark. 

The hospitality industry is known to have a high turnover rate each year. Turning to PEOs for help in retaining employees, reducing employee turnover, and hiring new employees in case of emergencies, can be of massive help to the industry. 

What Is A PEO?

PEO stands for professional employer organization. PEOs essentially offer individuals all sorts of HR solutions, to make administrative operations and management easier for the company. PEOs are significantly establishing themselves in the business world, and have the potential to make everything HR-related, ten times easier for you. PEOs make HR solutions much more cost-effective than having to invest in an entire HR department. As restaurants, cafes and other eateries struggle to make ends meet, PEOs have proven to be their messiah in this time of turmoil. 

A Boon To The Hospitality Industry

PEOs have revolutionized the way the business world manages its HR solutions. And as for the restaurants and hospitality industry, PEOs have made their functioning easier, cheaper, and much more efficient. PEOs essentially take care of all sorts of HR operations on behalf of a firm or an organization, without cutting a huge hole in the company’s budget. Apart from that, they take up all the responsibilities, while the power remains in the hands of the business that hired them. Hence, it’s a win-win situation for these said businesses. 

HR operations involve hiring relevant staff, training new employees, providing and managing compensation requirements, resolving disputes among employees and management, creating and implementing rules and regulations that the employees have to follow, making sure that the said rules and regulations are followed, and so on. All the activities listed above only barely begin to map out the functions of HR. Therefore, it is crystal clear how time-consuming, cumbersome, and effortful a task Human Resource management can be.  

In a time where restaurants, cafes, and other eateries are witnessing a shortage of staff, and do not possess the funds to spend on the maintenance of the space, let alone invest in hiring, PEOs can be of great help. Not only do they take the burden of all things Human Resource management off the owner’s shoulders, but they also have the potential to help you save a significant amount of investment in terms of finance and time. With the help of great PEO services, restaurant owners can focus on more important tasks at hand, like customer satisfaction and hospitality services, leaving hard work and the burden of HR onto PEO professionals. 

How Have PEOs Helped The Hospitality Industry?

PEOs have been of extensive help to restaurant owners, cafes, and hotels largely by taking the burden of managing all sorts of human resource and administrative operations off their shoulders. With the help of great PEO services, the hospitality industry is beginning to stand on its feet again. Some of how PEOs have helped the restaurant industry in the past, and SolveHR can help your restaurant, have been listed below. 

  1. Hiring and Onboarding Processes: One of the most crucial functions of a PEO is to offer hiring and onboarding services to its clients. SolveHR has the potential to carry out the hiring process and assist your restaurant with the onboarding process so that you don’t have to waste your valuable time or resources, scouring for the best fit for your restaurant in the crowd. In addition to that, we have a database of potential candidates, ready to be explored, in case you require emergency hiring services. We take complete responsibility for training your staff so that they are the best fit for your restaurant. 
  2. Compensation Management: Another important, yet cumbersome process that HR has to carry out is the compensation and benefits of your restaurant employees. This process can prove to be quite tricky and requires quite an amount of time and effort to get right. With a PEO taking charge of compensation, the burden of having to maintain records, track improvements, and so on, is taken off your shoulders. Additionally, keeping track of whether you’ve paid your employees on time or not, is not your headache anymore. You can thus solely focus on customer service, while we take care of the backend operations for your restaurant. 
  3. Reduced Employee Turnover: As mentioned earlier, the restaurant industry sees the largest employee turnover each year, with its long working hours and insufficient compensation. With an expert PEO by your side, you can significantly reduce employee turnover. Since PEOs have expertise in HR, they offer great benefits to their employees, pay salaries on time, offer great compensation benefits, and so on. This helps you retain your employees for a long time. 
  4. Conflict Management: One of the most important functions of a human resource team is handling conflicts among the employees of their organization. Being the middleman in a dispute trying to solve the issue between employees can prove to be a stressful affair. If the parties involved are not satisfied, they may even consider suing. To avoid all this stress and handle situations that benefit all the parties involved, PEOs can be of great help. Having worked with multiple clients and restaurants, they have experience in handling all sorts of conflicts that may occur in a work environment. 

These are a few of the many ways in which expert PEOs like SolveHR can be of help to your restaurant. To find out more about how we can help you reduce the burden of cumbersome, yet necessary human resource activities, get in touch with our team at SolveHR.
