This week's survey

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)

Last Week's Survey

Do you know how much revenue each of your employees generate for your business?
  • I know how much revenue they make and also what it costs to run the factory every hour.
  • No, I don't and I don't think it is that relevant except for sales people. As long as I know that each individual is performing well - at his/her 's best and the company is performing well and profitable, I am happy.
  • Our revenue generated by each employee it budgeted at $250,000. We're running closer to $300,000 at the moment through improvements in efficiency and new equipment that has sped up the finishing department.
  • As a sole trader I know how much revenue each of my advertising instead of employee generates. In my accounting program, I have each advertising place listed as an employee. When I print the invoice I allocate that reps name to the invoice. At the end of the year I can see how much I generated from each group. So when Senis advise me I have had all these amazing hits that I did not get, I can so I ONLY generated $x.xx Dollars in sales. Works well for me. It does not affect income on BAS.

Our survey questions are sent in by readers. If you have an idea for a future survey please send an email to Your suggestion may be on the minds of many others.
