following are some essential strategies to help you efficiently supervise your restaurant staff:
1. Hiring And Onboarding
Building a successful team starts with hiring the right individuals for the job. As a restaurant manager, it is essential to
identify staffing needs and create clear job descriptions and requirements. A structured recruitment process should be
