M1 Point of Views of different stakeholders
Directors the business through meetings with top managers and managing stretegies for progress of tesco.Employees should work hard on making good quality products that will make profit and also increase pay and conditions of Employees and also helpful for safety, health and pension arrangements.
Customer’s views are to getting latest brands and saving by low price products.
D1 Evaluate the influence different stakeholders exert in one organization
Stakeholders stand for great influence in organization. Developing countries employees make fashionable clothes and brands to exert little power over their employer’s to give them jobs and getting new products.
Owners are the organization’s main stakeholders and gain profit and pays all bills and wages to workers and remain profit shares with shareholders
directors pay attention to make strategy and decisions regarding organization Government influences by law rights to change behaviour of environmental or health and safety. Employees exert main role in business profit or loss. When the economy is active they work hard and make extra products.
Customers also create great influence within an organization by purchasing products from store or online at low prices.
I was given an Assignment of two contrasting organizations Tesco and Oxfam. I found that both organizations are serving better in their departments and both are for people. in both organizations stake holder are more important participant because if you don’t have too many stake holder and your profitable and non profitable organizations will not succeed in their missions.
I would like to recommend the both different organization one is profit gaining Tesco and nonprofits gaining Oxfam have good customer connection because Oxfam is an international charity which is focused on fighting poverty and providing them shelter.and Tesco is providing daily needs products for customers and also providing funds to Oxfoam so that they can participate in decreasing poverty. So both plays important role for customers.
