Tired of digging through an endless sea of folders and files to find that one document you need? You’re not alone. Your employees are right there with you.
Employees spend about 19% of their workweek searching for information. That’s a big chunk of time, and as we all know, time is money. In addition to costing your company money and stressing out your employees, a poor file structure can jeopardize the security of your files and make onboarding new hires a messy process.
The holiday season is a fun, festive time of year. It’s also one of the busiest times of the year. Between the cooking, cleaning, shopping, and decorating, it’s easy to lose sight of the reason for the season. At PetPlate, we believe the holidays should be about spending more quality time with your family, pup included. In this post, we’ll share ideas on how you can do that — even if it’s cold and snowy outside.
Cloud storage services have evolved to become more than simple depositories for digital files. They now offer a variety of features that make communication and collaboration simpler for workers. This is especially true for remote teams.
Remote workers face unique challenges that can hinder productivity. Cloud storage allows distributed teams to share data securely, easily access files from anywhere, and seamlessly collaborate with colleagues no matter the physical distance between them.
Data security is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing how to store and share your business files. Some company decision-makers are hesitant to upgrade to cloud storage and file sharing due to concerns about protecting sensitive information. While no file storage solution is foolproof, cloud storage offers advanced protections that local servers can’t provide.
Work burnout is a state of chronic emotional distress caused by work-related stress. Gallup, a globally recognized analytics company, released a report on employee burnout. It found that 76% of employees experience burnout at least sometimes, and 28% experience it “very often” or “always.”
Sharing digital files is an integral part of business operations. A 2016 Hubspot study revealed the average business stores 162.9 terabytes of data. These businesses estimated their accumulated data would increase by over 50% within a year and a half. That data represents priceless information, but it’s only useful if you can share it with other users quickly and securely.
The first email marketing campaign was in 1978. It went out to 400 people and generated $13 million in sales, according to TowerData. Decades later, email marketing still generates the best ROI of any channel. Our culture has changed a lot since that first email blast, and it’s important to evolve your email marketing tactics to keep up with new consumer expectations.
Dog coats come in as many styles as our hair, but unlike human hair, their coats play a significant role in maintaining proper health. Your dog’s fur might be short and smooth, long and silky, wiry and curly, or even thick and corded like the Hungarian Sheepdog. Whatever type of coat your pup has, it’s working hard to store vital nutrients, keep their internal temperature regulated, protect them from abrasions and infections, and keep them properly hydrated.
Finding the right employees is a challenge in any industry, but especially for restaurants. The restaurant industry has a notoriously high turnover rate – over 70%. Every time you have to hire and train a new employee, you’re investing time and money with no promise of a return on that investment. Not to mention, it’s stressful for you and the rest of your staff.
Recipe cards are the key to BOH training by minimizing food waste, increasing consistency, and making your restaurant more money.
Every server’s goal is to earn more tips. No server is getting rich off their hourly wage. Instead of lamenting the typically low hourly rate, embrace the fact that you can give yourself a raise any time. You just have to sharpen your server skills.
The number one thing you can do to get better tips is to learn how to read your table. Rather than a specific action, reading a table is more a style of service.
Restaurants aren’t known for offering job benefits or perks. It’s difficult when profit margins for the industry are often less than 6%, but job benefits are one of the best ways to ensure you keep good employees.
Maintaining a low turnover rate means you save money by not having to constantly interview, hire, and train new staff. Keeping employees long-term also means you have a staff that knows your restaurant inside and out and can keep things running smoothly no matter what. In short, job...
