It’s a safe bet that business templates aren’t foremost on the minds of BC retail liquor or cannabis store owners or managers, but when you need one, it’s difficult to find templates that work well, or that you can easily modify to suit your specific needs.
Enter Thrive Liquor & Cannabis Advisors. As retail cannabis and liquor consultants, we often receive calls from clients looking for MSWord and Excel templates to help them streamline their operations and HR. The most frequently requested templates are for job descriptions (for online job postings) and license compliance checklists.
You can also purchase retail cannabis or liquor consultations from the Thrive Advisors shop.
When you have business templates that you can reuse for repeated operations or HR tasks, you save time, because you won’t be scrambling to find, modify or create a template.
Increase Efficiency & Streamline Processes
Templates increase efficiency, serving as a tool to help manage internal workflows. For example, let’s say you hire a liquor store associate. That one business decision results in a need for several forms or templates. First, you may need to submit a new employee requisition form to HR or your supervisor, then write a job description for the job ad. Once you hire the employee, you’ll need to email an offer of employment. Having business templates for each of these common tasks, and ensuring all managers and employees use the same templates, increases efficiency and consistency.
When you increase efficiency and save time as described above, you save money. Additionally, if you use templates designed specifically with BC liquor stores and cannabis stores in mind, you don’t have to search for a template online and alter it to suit you. While you can Thrive Advisor’s templates, you’ll probably find you can use them “as is” or modify them slightly to suit your specific needs.
You can, and for years, our liquor and cannabis consultants did just that, but found that they had to make too many alterations to generic templates to make them useful to our industry.
