Why can Liu Qiangdong and Cao Dewang be compared? If among all the rich people, there is still a person with a conscience who can care about the well-being of employees, then it is estimated that only Liu Qiangdong and Cao Dewang are left.
Everyone knows that JD.com acquired Deppon Logistics, and Liu Qiangdong, who has stepped down from JD.com, sent an internal letter to JD.com. Liu Qiangdong announced in an internal letter that from January 1, 2023, the salary of all senior executives above the deputy director of JD.com Group must be reduced by 10% to 20%, and the higher the position, the greater the salary reduction.
The number of executives involved in this salary cut is as high as 2,000, and where will the amount of the salary cut be used? That's the point. JD.com will pay five insurances and one housing fund for all existing employees of Deppon, whether they are self-owned or outsourced. At present, the number of employees in Deppon has exceeded 100,000, and JD.com will provide protection for these grassroots employees at one time so that they can work with peace of mind.
While the move may be disappointing for some executives, it is significant good news for hard-working junior employees. Also a successful entrepreneur, Liu Qiangdong personally contributed 100 million yuan to expand this fund to the employee child rescue fund, so that all the children of JD.com employees can be funded, regardless of their working hours, as long as they encounter an accident that causes incapacity or life, their children will be raised and cared for by the fund until they graduate from college.
The purpose of Liu Qiangdong's move is to help families whose incomes are already low can still bear the burden of raising children after losing their labor force. In this era of the law of the jungle, who else can do this by thinking about the poor after achieving fame and trying to ensure the livelihood of their employees?
