Managing a bar and restaurant means having to deal with employee turnover rates that you just don't see in other industries. That means more time spent hiring and training staff and less time spent on other areas of the business. While high turnover is part of the industry, there are some steps you can take to make sure that your employees want to stick around.
Owning and managing a bar is a labor of love. You have to work late nights and holidays, deal with disgruntled customers and try to keep track of an inventory and make sure that the books always balance out. With so many challenges, it is important to surround yourself with a stellar team. Bartenders handle more cash and are responsible for more sales than anyone else in your establishment. They are charged with a lot of trust and responsibility, which can make it all the more disheartening when you start to suspect that an employee is stealing.
