Smart Scheduling for Hotel and Hospitality
Baron Payroll helps hotel improve their bottom line with automated 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 count on a diverse workforce to handle a wide range of guest requests at every hour of the day.
To keep an otherwise busy 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 primary concern at Bayside. Their ultimate goal; boost customer service without increasing labor costs.
Monumental Workforce Management Challenges
The management staff had been struggling to find an employee timekeeping and scheduling system that prevented understaffing, could be adjusted on the fly, kept all parties notified about scheduling changes, tracked data for DOL compliance, and ensured that time cards were turned in on time to the payroll service. For Bayside, this was no easy task with so many diverse departments including hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance, and operations. In every department, supervisors needed trustworthy data to design scheduling strategies that eliminated waste while maintaining an exceptional standard of service for their guests.
Bayside needed a hotel employee scheduling solution that would meet scheduling targets while providing greater flexibility for team members and less busy work for managers.
Time and Attendance Made Easy With Baron Payroll
The Baron Workforce Management Suite time tracking tool, Baron Time, started delivering benefits during the very first pay cycle. With mobile access built in, Baron Time allows staff members to clock in/out on their mobile device wherever they are—whether they work in housekeeping, guest services, security, or maintenance. Because the PunchLogic feature dramatically reduces missed and duplicate punches, time card accuracy has improved substantially.
