Creating your restaurant employee handbook

Having an employee handbook is one of the most efficient ways of onboarding and training your employees. It functions both as a manual, and as a reference guide you can turn to in case there’s a disagreement between you and your staff. 

For those reasons, it should cover performance, communication, appearance, health and safety, labor laws and so on – everything that concerns your employees’ working conditions.

You can download this employee handbook as a Word document, so you can customize it to fit the unique needs of your restaurant. Once you’ve adjusted the handbook, you can print it out and share it with your employees. You can also upload it to the Document section of Planday, so your staff can access it at anytime.
