Spend less time on payroll and more time on your restaurant.

For busy restauranteurs that prioritize creating exceptional guest experiences - every second counts.

Running a restaurant is no small feat, and managing labor is a major challenge for most restaurateurs.

Tracking attendance and hours worked, managing employee schedules and shift change requests, dealing with payroll for restaurants tips, and complying with whatever the newest state or federal regulation of the month is are just a few of the countless tasks that require painstaking attention to detail, taking up valuable time and energy each week.

By incorporating isolved, restaurant operators can benefit from a full suite of features that will boost engagement, improve accuracy, and free up their time for more essential tasks - all without compromising on quality or your guest experience.

Minimize the Risk of Noncompliance

Constantly shifting schedules and unpredictable income can create significant hardship for workers. Although desirable for FSR employers, just-in-time or tentative scheduling can leave employees struggling to adapt. With groups advocating for fairer treatment in recent years, more jurisdictions are enacting predictive scheduling laws. FSRs that operate in multiple states may face significant scheduling and compliance issues as a result, and our team will help you navigate them.

14 Million Workers*
*As of 2023, the accommodation and food services industry had over 14 million workers, as stated by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Yet, that number isn’t enough to fill demand—job openings continue to remain at near record high at nearly 1.4 million.
Business leaders in the restaurant industry have their work cut out for them. By creating a favorable employee experience (EX), they can gain a competitive advantage when it comes to hiring and retaining talent - that’s where PNI•HCM can help.
