Payroll and Employee Management for cafes, bars and restaurants
One of the most challenging and complex areas of a hospitality business is the recruitment, retention and ongoing management of employees.
With a workforce often made up of casual workers, visa holders, mixed shifts and high turnover, challenges can arise. Not to mention varying rates of pay depending on hours worked, time of day, and day of the week – that’s where things really start to get confusing.
The hospitality industry is unique and complex, which is why you can’t entrust just anyone with your payroll management. You need a specialist who understands the detail of the Fair Work Act and the relevant award; whether it be the Hospitality Industry (General) or the Restaurant Industry Award and how this applies to your hospitality business.
That’s where the team at Ten X come in.
Working with us we can help you with all facets of the complex payroll and employee management process making this a simple process for you. This includes providing advice on staff retention including the various pay structures, incentive schemes and employee investment options.
We’ll become your very own virtual Human Resources Department, providing timely advice and taking control of your payroll management. This will create a seamless process which requires minimal input from you, giving you time and space to focus on managing your business.
Review and Compliance
We can provide you with advice on best practice to ensure compliance with the relevant legislation and Awards. For existing businesses, we can help by reviewing your current processes, procedures and documents (contracts and policies) to ensure your business is compliant with the relevant legislation.
Onboarding and Offboarding
