I Know Everything - Chapter 568
Chapter 568: Little Fantasy Reward.
“Congratulations to the host, for the third consecutive month, Yongxing Supermarkets took the top 5 spots for single stores turnover sales and it’s developing quite nicely.”
“This completed the task given by Zhang Yaya as well as the surprise rewards from the system!”
“The system rewards the host with Spirit Gathering Array (Beginner). The Spririt Gathering Array has the function to gather the energy from heaven and earth to obtain the Spirit Gathering Liquid.”
“The Spirit Gathering Liquid is not only an important raw material for the upgraded version of Lunar Ointment but also treat disease, increase the growth of crops and increase the intelligence of animals. The higher the grade of the Spirit Gathering Liquid was, the more effective it would be.”
“These are the following steps and ingredients needed…”
Chen Huan thought at the beginning it was for making it into the Western Conference Finals after knocking the Spurs off the playoff.
He didn’t expect it to be so stingy and give nothing after he played so hard for four games.
But Chen Huan’s complaint all evaporated after seeing the Spirit Gathering Array and the Spirit Gathering Liquid.
Good Lord, I misunderstood you!
You’re a great system!
Wasn’t the Spirit Gathering Liquid like Guanyin’s purification bottle?
Although it wouldn’t bring someone back to life Guanyin’s bottle, it should be like a weak version of it!
He was still worried about Han Dong’er’s mother’s health but with the Spirit Gathering Liquid, he wouldn’t claim that he would heal her to full health but it should at least have some therapeutic effect, which was already great!
Chen Huan quickly thought of another point while he was rejoicing.
Good Master also mentioned ‘crops’ and ‘animals’, it was definitely trying to drive him into becoming a farmer!
Although Chen Huan didn’t hate animal husbandry and agriculture, as the most handsome man, as the unparalleled Lu Xiaofeng, as the unparalleled Chu Liuxiang, the Little Prince of Basketball, it would be weird for him to end up going to farming and raise some pigs.
He had the responsibility of being an idol.
Chen Huan felt excited when he thought he would get something as good as the Spirit Gathering Array.
In the few years to come, he would use the various equipment in the China Agricultural University to research on the Spirit Gathering Liquid.
When he graduated and even if he didn’t keep researching on that topic, he could still leisurely be a farmer after he bought off a mountain or a pasture abroad.
At that time, the food would be settled and be able to prolong their life as well as strengthen their body. It would be a great thing for the Chen family!
Chen Huan’s thoughts weren’t going too far.
Who didn’t want to live longer and be healthy and energetic while alive?
Chen Huan was in a good mood and opened his WeChat to chat with Zhang Yaya.
Zhang Yaya was similar to Shui Qianyu in the fact she would directly enter their school’s high school.
As the little princess and a top student of Second Junior High, she would obviously have that favorable treatment.
So she didn’t have to prepare for any entrance exams and just went to the supermarket to help her parents.
When doing business, the better the business was, the more willing she would be to work, she would even be willing to tired herself to death.
On the other hand, there would be no motivation to work if the business wasn’t good, which wasn’t good to get the business back up.
The current Yongxing was just too busy.
They didn’t specifically open earlier for the vegetable sales but just opened every day at 9am and closed at 10pm.
During those 13 hours, all the employees on duty could basically not take a break.
According to Zhang Yaya, it was more relaxed during breakfast but for lunch and dinner, it was like wartime and they would spend at most 15 minutes on it.
Zhang Duocai already pondered whether to add a third shift in that 13 hours shift.
The working shift would be 8 hours for each shift if it was a two shift model and they added the preparation and cleaning time.
For the three shift model, it would be five and half an hour per shift.
They had to consider that the labor cost would increase by 50%.
The salaries for the cleaning ladies was already 6k yuan per month while the other service staff was at 10k with the manager and directors at even higher salaries.
They would definitely recruit low-level personnel but based on the current numbers 3000 employees, it meant they must recruit another 1500 people.
So basically, their salary expense would increase by 12 million each month if they didn’t count the various half-year and end year bonus as well as the various advantageous conditions.
The business of Yongxing Supermarkets was indeed doing very well.
But their profit was really low and was basically 50% of what Carrefour and Wal-Mart did.
Even if the sales of their shops were the top 5, the profit of their shops were estimated to not even be in the top 20.
A big city like Lin’an would be able to sustain that expense but what about the place they abandoned previously?
Wouldn’t it be a waste of money if they put three shifts in those places?
But if they implemented a two shifts model instead of three shifts model there, wouldn’t they eye the Lin’an easier model?
They would feel it was unfair.
This wouldn’t be good and not conductive to lift up their morale for better productivity.
One of the biggest strengths of the current Yongxing Supermarkets was the enthusiasm shown by the employees.
Yongxing Supermarkets’ reputation wasn’t bad to begin with but because of their various services now, the people would feel bad if they didn’t at least enter the shop to buy a few things.
But would Yongxing Supermarket thrive and be so popular if that feature was lost?
So Zhang Duocai didn’t dare to take this matter that could shake the foundation of the supermarket that lightly.
Chen Huan had his own opinion on this.
“Are they the ones complaining that they are tired?” Chen Huan asked Zhang Yaya.
“They didn’t, they just looked very exhausted at the end.” Zhang Yaya replied.
“Isn’t it fine then?” Chen Huan said, “They work for 8 hours, they prepare and clean the shop for one hour so they only took care of the customers for 7 hours. They only had to work hard for seven hours per day to earn the wages that other people need to work for two or three months while they did in one month, how can they still complain?”
“Huh?” Zhang Yaya was surprised, “I thought you would sympathize with them.”
“Sympathy is for the weak that don’t have the means.” Chen Huan calmly said, “They are using their labor to get paid so they don’t need any sympathy. They also understand this point.”
“If you increase the staff, it would inevitably reduce the profit of the stores, which would end up reducing their wages and bonuses or even cause losses that would make them lose their jobs and they wouldn’t find jobs like that anymore, they all know this.”
“So if you have asked the employee about this and noticed that they are working even harder recently, it’s because of this! This is what they are worried about!”
“No wonder those people keep telling me they weren’t tired and even worked like their life depended on it!” Zhang Yaya said with sudden realization, “They are afraid we are hiring more people?”
“I think it should be the case.” Chen Huan said.
Zhang Yaya felt incredulous for a bit.
Unexpectedly, it would be a mistake to reduce the workload on the employee.
But if she thought about it, Chen Huan’s thinking was correct because those employees were acting as he said!
It seemed that there were still many things she had to learn in the business world!
Chen Huan really was a monster.
He could come up with such a great supermarket model while clearly having no experience in the industry.
And also so understanding of the problem it came up with.
Some people were really born as geniuses and ordinary people just can’t compare!
