Brilio.net – Finding a team you can trust to take care of your business is not easy. To get a trusted team, owners must not only look at the skills and skills of the people they want to include in the team. More than that, the owner must test his integrity and dedication.
It is not easy to test it because it cannot be measured or assessed in a short time. This means that assembling a reliable team to manage business operations requires extra time and effort. However, it is important because the wrong decision can have a big impact on business continuity.
This is well known by a well-known aci meatball stall in Bogor. Through his upload on the TikTok account @waroenguncal, reported by brilio.net on Wednesday (29/11), the shop owner talked about his experience of being cheated by a former employee who was his trusted person.
The fraud committed by the former employee was not immediately uncovered. It took a long time to find out that the former employee was not trustworthy. Because the former employee is a trusted person of the shop owner.
Apart from that, the shop owner didn’t realize he was being cheated because at that time, March 2023, he thought his shop was experiencing a mere decline in profits. After checking, it turned out that the shop’s expenses were very large. However, he was not suspicious of his employees because at that time raw goods were very expensive.
Nevertheless, the shop owner is still collecting ‘data’ little by little. He found out what was odd about the cash flow in his shop that caused him to lose a lot.
That’s where he knew there were many irregularities. For example, the money that should have been deposited to the owner was missing Rp. 1 million. He also found a pile of 35 tendon meatballs in a place where they shouldn’t be.
Not only that, the trusted person even talked about the owner behind his back and provoked other employees. What shocked the uploader the most was that 80 boxes of the shop’s mineral water disappeared in a month. Turns out, oh it turns out, the water was sold to another shop.
Because of the abundance of evidence, the shop owner invited his former employee to resolve the problem amicably. However, the person avoided it.
“In fact, I’m throwing the blame onto other people,” said the uploader in a written statement on the video.
In the end, the uploader reported the former employee to the authorities. After three hours of interrogation, the employee admitted that he routinely sells @waroenguncal mineral water to other shops, to the point of having lots of them every month. He did this for three years of work.
As a result, @waroenguncal’s unfortunate story went viral on TikTok. Until this article was written, the video had been watched 1 million times, liked 28 thousand times, and commented on 1011 times. Some of the comments are written as follows.
“My brother’s sushi business is also like this, he has 4 locations but the income is rich from 1 location. When we did an audit, it turned out that all the employees worked together to make their own raw materials and sell them themselves. After that, Covid finally closed all the outlets and started from 0 again without employees ,” said the account @ajizinthebehind.
“How come people can work dishonestly? If I’m really afraid of working dishonestly, that’s how scared people are of not trusting me anymore,” wrote the account @syhst13.
“My heart hurts when I read it bro. I hope the moose shop will continue to progress and continue to be successful, bro,” commented the @ngagayempangsit.id account.
