Smart Scheduling for Hotel and Hospitality
Berndt CPA helps hotel improve their bottom line with simplified scheduling and more efficient time and attendance tracking.
The Bayside Hotel and Resort is a 135-room, 5-story complex which includes a hotel, two restaurants, and a small business center. There is no “typical” day for The Bayside Hotel, and they trust in a diverse workforce to manage a wide range of guest requests at every hour of the day.
To keep an otherwise hectic operation running smoothly, Bayside faces labor force challenges that range from last-minute sick leave to schedule changes to last-minute overtime. With their reputation resting squarely on their power to serve patrons with personal attention, workforce management is a leading concern at Bayside. Their ultimate goal; improve customer service without increasing labor costs.
Formidable Workforce Management Challenges
The management staff had been struggling to find an employee timekeeping and scheduling system that eliminated understaffing, could be adapted on the fly, kept all parties notified about scheduling changes, tracked data for DOL compliance, and guaranteed that time cards were turned in on time to the payroll processing service. For Bayside, this was no easy task with so many diverse departments including hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance, and operations. In every department, managers needed reliable data to develop scheduling strategies that eliminated waste while maintaining a distinctive standard of service for their visitors.
Bayside needed a hotel employee scheduling solution that would meet scheduling objectives while offering greater flexibility for staff members and less busy work for supervisors.
