Did you employ enough salespersons?

Make a quick calculation:

  • Your store is open 300 days a year, because shops are closed on Sunday.
  • Your store is open from 10 am to 8 pm (10 hours a day). Opening hours a year: ?
  • A salesperson works 40 hours a week. He/she gets 6 weeks paid holidays. Also, calculate 3 weeks off for education, trainings and exhibition visits. Also plan 1 week absence because of illness and 1 week for public holidays. Working hours a year: ?
  • 3 salesman should be always in store.

How many salesman should be employed?

  • If you have employed not enough salesperson, you will get a negative service factor which influences your sales amount ;-)
  • Also, play with the commission factor. The more commission a salesmen gets, the better he/she will sell. Be careful: a high commission will melt your profit ;-)
