Losing Money to Be a Tycoon - Chapter 749
November 19th, Saturday…
At the Manage Loss Trainees’ regular meeting…
Recently the Management Loss Generation Meeting was held twice a month, but it did not mean much to Pei Qian. There was not much useful information.
That was because the settlement cycle had just reached the middle stage. Many projects were still being developed step by step. There were no particularly dangerous joint events, and there were no signs of profits.
Since there was no such information, an intelligence-gathering organization like Manage Loss Trainees naturally could not gather anything.
However, on the principle of taking precautions, the Manage Loss Trainees’ meeting was still held as usual and reported as usual. Pei Qian listened intently the entire time, afraid that he would miss out on some important information.
The Manage Loss Trainees’ meeting went on as usual. They reported the recent work of their various departments as usual. Tang Yishu was still taking notes seriously as usual.
Most of the information was already in Pei Qian’s hands. Thus, there was not much to pay attention to.
He had to wait until the end of the following month after the next month, when the settlement date was near and various products were about to be released. Only then would he have to be on his guard.
Soon, the regular agenda for the Management Loss Trainee meeting was completed.
Tang Yishu looked at Pei Qian, implying that if there was nothing else, the meeting could end as per usual.
Pei Qian pondered for a moment and asked, “Everyone, what is your understanding of the Tengda spirit like?”
The Tengda spirit test yesterday made Pei Qian feel threatened.
If the latest batch of employees’ understanding of the Tengda spirit had completely gone astray, then the old employees who had affected them would definitely have a more serious misconception!
However, Pei Qian had no idea how serious this deviation was. Thus, he had to do a background check.
It was a good choice to start investigating from these Manage Loss Trainees.
That was because the manage loss trainees were the most tight-lipped people in the organisation. They would not say much or ask too many questions. They would not spread among the various departments even if Pei Qian asked some questions. They would not alert the enemy.
The trainees looked at each other, not understanding Pei Qian’s intentions.
However, everyone still answered according to their own understanding.
“Senior, the Tengda spirit that I understand is to save time and work efficiently. We use entertainment, rest, and relaxation to increase our work efficiency and achieve a win-win situation for both individuals and the company.”
“I think that the Tengda spirit is to fight for your own career, and not just completing the tasks given to it as an employee.”
“I think we should focus on making products, content, and do what we have to do to the best of our abilities, and use our sincerity to move users.”
The Manage Loss Trainees spoke one after another, but Pei Qian’s expression became more and more serious as he listened.
None of the Manage Loss Trainees said that the Tengda spirit was to be lazy?
This… was a huge problem!
The misunderstanding of the Tengda spirit had already spread among the Management Loss Students. This meant that the upper echelons, middle and lower echelons of the various departments would not be spared!
Pei Qian’s expression turned serious.
However, he was a little confused. The Manage Loss Trainees seemed to be talking about the same thing, but the way they described it was different.
Pei Qian asked, “Is there a more uniform and generalized explanation?”
The managers looked at each other and shook their heads.
“The core of the Tengda spirit lies in comprehension, right? How can there be a standard?”
“That’s right, Senior. Isn’t that your usual attitude?”
The corners of Pei Qian’s mouth twitched.
How the f*ck is this my usual attitude? Since when did I have an attitude?!
However, there was a problem. Since these Manage Loss Trainees had said that they did not have a unified standard and mainly relied on their own comprehension, why did their understanding just happen to deviate to the wrong place?
This made Pei Qian very confused. The entire company’s interpretation of the Tengda spirit was problematic, but he could not grasp it!
They had hidden it well.
Pei Qian pondered for a moment. He could not continue digging out information from the Management and New Employees. There would definitely not be any results.
That was because the people who could truly determine a department’s culture and understanding of the Tengda spirit were definitely not the lower level employees. They were, instead, the leaders of the upper management and the middle management.
The formation of a department’s culture would definitely be from top to bottom. The various department managers’ understanding of the Tengda spirit had gone off track. They had gone in the direction of striving. This meant that there must be a huge problem with the heads of each department!
If he wanted to change the current situation, he had to start from these people in charge.
Pei Qian looked at the date and suddenly had a plan.
The next day was the 20th. It was the day where the nameless restaurant was booked once a month.
Pei Qian decided to use this gathering to fish once and for all!
He invited all the department heads to be present so that he could ‘test’ their understanding of the Tengda spirit.
If he could find the culprit from these people in charge, Pei Qian would not mind arranging for him to be transferred to the Thriller Hostel or kicked out to be in charge of a marginal business. In short, he would not be allowed to continue destroying Tengda’s culture!
If the culprit was well-hidden and could not be found, he would think of a way to reverse the current trend and guide everyone’s interpretation of the Tengda spirit back to the right path.
At that thought, Pei Qian said, “Alright, that’s all for today. Meeting dismissed!”
“Little Tang, please stay for a while.”
The other Manage Loss Trainees left, leaving Tang Yishu alone with him.
“Senior, what’s the matter?” Tang Yishu asked.
Pei Qian smiled. “Nothing special. I just want to give you a new task.”
While Pei Qian planned to fish for information and investigate the mole in the department head who had misinterpreted the Tengda spirit tomorrow, he knew his own limits and was mentally prepared to find out nothing.
Pei Qian had only noticed the misinterpretation of the Tengda spirit after so long after all. This meant that the mole was very good at hiding himself.
Since that was the case, Pei Qian would definitely alert the enemy and raise their guard if he were to conduct a large-scale investigation. That might not be effective.
Under such circumstances, Little Tang’s identity as the Encourager could be a very good disguise!
Pei Qian continued, “I want you to investigate the Tengda spirit in the company. I realize that many employees like to talk about the Tengda spirit, but everyone has different interpretations of it.”
“I hope you can find out where everyone’s interpretation of the Tengda spirit comes from, apart from the parts that they have comprehended themselves. How were they affected? Where is the transmission node if someone has an objective acceleration effect on the Tengda spirit?”
“All in all, secretly observe everything related to the Tengda spirit, especially the source.”
Tang Yishu blinked, her face filled with confusion. “Senior, Yuan, aren’t you the source?”
Pei Qian: “…”
“Ahem, I mean, besides me, is there a second or third source?”
Tang Yishu nodded. “Ah, alright, Senior. I’ll remember that. However, I’m stupid. I might not be able to find out…”
Pei Qian waved his hand. “It’s alright. This is a long-term task. You just have to pay attention and slowly investigate. If you find anything, let me know immediately.”
Tang Yishu: “A-alright.”
November 20th, Sunday…
At the nameless restaurant…
The heads of the various departments of Tengda Corporation arrived one after another. They hugged each other warmly and exchanged pleasantries. It was a harmonious scene.
“Long time no see! How’s the project going?”
“It’s alright, it’s all thanks to Boss Pei’s leadership.”
“Ai, I was just about to tell you that I have a small matter that requires your cooperation.”
“Sure, we’ll definitely cooperate! If you need anything, just tell us!”
The people in charge of the department chatted and laughed as they walked into the nameless restaurant and took their seats.
It had been a long time since there was a gathering for all department heads.
The nameless restaurant might be booked on the 20th of every month but Boss Pei had to use it for all kinds of reception after all. For example, he had to receive the bosses of other companies, treat departments that had made outstanding contributions to the restaurant as a form of praise, and so on. There were fewer opportunities for the heads of the various departments to gather for meals.
While the heads of the various departments were usually in contact, they were all rather busy. There were not many opportunities for them to gather together for a meal.
There was no competition between the departments, and there was not much work pressure. Most of the people in charge knew each other and were good friends. Thus, the atmosphere was very harmonious.
There were also other people in charge who did not come, such as Qiu Hong. He was still busy preparing the incubation base for the ‘Destitution Plan’ in Beijing.
Some of the new department heads did not have much interaction with the more senior department heads. Liang Qingfan, for example, used this opportunity to get to know the other department heads.
Soon, Boss Pei arrived. Everyone took their seats and chatted as they ate.
As Pei Qian ate, he looked at the twenty-odd department heads in front of him, feeling inexplicably melancholic.
How did Tengda manage to develop so many departments out of nowhere?!
What’s more, these were all top-tier departments within Tengda Corporation. The companies that they had invested in were not amongst them. There were already so many people.
Initially, he had only wanted to incur losses. However, he did not expect the goal of incurring losses would get further away from him as he opened more departments.
Pei Qian felt that it was about time after eating for a while.
Thus, he gently knocked on the table, gesturing for everyone to quiet down.
The people-in-charge immediately stopped discussing and looked over with a serious expression when they saw that Boss Pei was about to speak.
Everyone had a fresh face of hopefulness.
