Response to the question

In summary, the report is quite outstanding. This is due, as the student clearly understands EasyJet's objectives and their goals which there set out to achieve. I believe that the report, could be enhanced, however there are small amendments. The report gives an overview of EasyJet within the first paragraph, which is quite good. This is due to that this allows the examiner to prominently understand what the report is based upon. The report states that EasyJet was founded by Sir Stelios Haji-Loannou in 1995. This is good, as this points out how the company was formed. Although the report could include the person's background and his business actives before he set-up the company. This would allow the examiner to understand the person's background.

Level of analysis

The report states that the business has a no tie policy, expect from the pilots. It would be good to include their option on this, and include the reason/s to why there would implement such a policy. For example the report could include 'EasyJet has a no tie policy, which may be due to allow their employees to feel at home when there are working, this creates an relax form of working.' The report states a number of bullet points, which describes EasyJet's objectives. These are explained well and justified were necessary.

Quality of writing

The report states the term 'Public Limited Company', however hasn't fully explained this term. The report could include 'An Public Limited Company, is a company which is owned by a number of shareholders. Shareholders can purchase shares at the price stated (which can increase/decrease on a daily basis) on the London Stock Exchange'. All technical terms, should be explained to allow the examiner to acknowledge the student's understanding.
