Create a spreadsheet to predict total labour costs for a shop per day, given the following information:

  • There will be 3 grades of staff - managers, counter staff and cleaning staff
  • There will be 2 shifts - day and night

Hourly pay rates per grade per shift will be as follows:

The minimum wage doesn't apply here ...

Total hours per day will be as follows:

Enter these figures in your spreadsheet also

Create formulae to show the total wages by labour type and time period - your final spreadsheet should have a structure similar to the one shown below:

Use an array formulae to calculate total wages

The rates and hours for provincial stores (the dark unknown world outside London) will be different:

These are the equivalent provincial figures

Copy your spreadsheet twice to get spreadsheets for London, Provinces and Total.  Create formulae giving the total wage bill for each region, and sum them to get the total wage figure per day.
