Skateboard Gear Retail Business Plan

Management Summary

Employees will be encouraged to work within their creative, physical, and intellectual boundaries. All duties will be divided and delegated according to strengths and weaknesses. At Burly we will expect a high degree of customer service skills and personality as this is essential to our success. The Casperflips will use their combined experience in administration to jointly manage the store and its employees. Nollie will generally have responsibility for inventory ordering and management, and accounting, while Ollie will be responsible for marketing and sales, and will directly manage the store's employees. 

Nollie and Ollie Casperflip will assess the productivity and perform informal evaluations of all employees every six months. These bi-annual evaluations are conducive to the continued growth of our small business.

7.1 Personnel Plan

The personnel plan is included in the following table below. In addition to the Casperflips, there will be one full-time employee and one part-time employee working 10-20 hours per week. The full-time employee will be paid at a rate of  $10.00 per hour and the one part-time employee will be paid at a rate of $8.00 per hour. All employees will benefit from a one day paid holiday on their respective birthdays and one week of paid vacation after twelve months of employment. We anticipate a 5% pay increase annually based upon performance.

At this time medical benefits will not be offered to employees. As profits increase, medical benefits will be offered to all employees, probably by year three.
