If you are writing a restaurant employee handbook for the first time, then using software might seem the fastest way around it. However, using a restaurant template decreases your publishing costs because hiring someone to translate seems less expensive than the software's license.|
If you own a small restaurant business and you need a restaurant employee handbook for the first time, then writing the document on your own seems the most practical choice. This independence pays off when you save money while you retain control over the rules you set over your business operations.
For first time writers of a restaurant employee handbook, it is understandable that you would feel overwhelmed. A good place to start would be to use one of those free restaurant forms that you can download from a restaurant website or blog. These restaurant forms usually come in MS Word or text format for easy editing in either Windows, Mac or Linux.
Another good idea is to use special software that puts together a restaurant employee handbook in minutes. The restaurant software has different versions of the chapters needed in your handbook. Choose the best blocks of text that says explicitly the message you want to say.
If you feel one or two paragraphs lack the eloquence, then you can easily edit them through the software. When you are ready with the final draft, you can print the pages in two steps. Unfortunately, you might need Windows specifically as your OS because of the software's requirements.
On the other hand, if you use a ready-made restaurant template for an employee handbook, then you still get the same result, which is a custom restaurant employee handbook. However, you would have to set extra time for editing a Microsoft Word document or a text file.
At the same time, you would have to consider creating a Spanish or Chinese version of your restaurant employee handbook, which your bilingual employees will find easier to understand when printed in their mother tongue. If you use the restaurant software, then you do not need to hire a translator to write your handbook in another language.
However, if you decide to take a hand at manually translating your restaurant employee handbook, then you have more assurance that your bilingual document means the same way as the English version. Machine generated translations frequently mess up the meaning of the text. Hiring a human translator clarifies the meaning and avoids misinterpretations.
On the other hand, special software for creating employee handbooks costs money, which may be more expensive than hiring a translator. If you are concerned with costs, then using a free template of a restaurant employee handbook is your best option. It may cost you more time than using the available technology, but once you see the finished handbook, you will definitely think it is all worth it.
No matter which option you choose, you still end up with a fairly consistent employee handbook, which covers all the pertinent areas of business operations as well as employee rights, labor law and other employment issues. To protect your restaurant business from future employment lawsuits, you should consult a corporate or labor lawyer to make sure your policies follow the labor laws in your state.
