Many restaurants choose printed restaurant training manuals to add a sense of brand and restaurant culture. Printed training materials make onboarding new employees much easier, which then allows managers to deliver their message in a clear and concise way and to focus on improving operations. Printed training manuals clearly communicate the standards of the restaurant and proper procedures. This ensures a superior customer experience and keeps servers, cooks, and guest assistants all on the same page.
When planning printed restaurant training manuals, it is important to consider both the design and printing of the project to ensure your manuals are both easy to read and cost-effective. Because of this, the experts at The Print Authority will individually cater to your unique requirements.
In today’s post, we’ll review the printing process and provide tips on training your employees.
Design and Development
If you need design help, the graphic designers at The Print Authority help design easy to read and understand training manuals. We also work well with companies that have communications experts who create the content and/or design. We are experts at making your manual look great and communicate effectively, a direct effect of being printed with high-quality standards.
Typical restaurant training manuals include information about:
- Processes related to the completion of daily tasks in the restaurant
- Procedural checks to ensure quality
- Safety protocols
- Policies and employee benefits
- Permissible usage of company property and assets
- Plans for daily and weekly routines
Most importantly, training manuals should motivate your team to do the right thing and work together as a team!
Make Sure It’s Branded
Great training manuals are updated regularly to ensure that information presented to new employees is current, reflecting up-to-date industry standards and company procedures. An outstanding restaurant training manual should incorporate both high-quality design and company branding. This helps employees feel like a part of the organization, reducing turnover and improving adherence to company standards. Great training materials also are a physical demonstration of the restaurant’s commitment to training their employees. In addition, well-prepared materials reinforce the same messages and themes to all team members, communicating the company vision to everyone.
When you add branding and professional design to your training manuals, your team members will notice the difference. They are more likely to actually read the materials presented this way and to absorb what you are communicating. In other words, well-presented materials are more likely to get the job done!
Lastly, it is important to make sure that your communications are clear.
Since a training manual will serve as the organization’s voice, it should align with the organization’s goals for onboarding new employees. A great training manual includes high-quality design and printing, clearly presented messages, and company branding.
