* Rewarding colleagues: this is one of the goals which are always 'to keep the fun' and to continue to reward colleagues for working hard. This helps everyone working at Richer Sounds as this keeps them focused and motivated. * Technology developments: new product come into the market, there are new ways of doing business e.g. through the Richer Sounds website.

and nearly 70 staff involved in running shops around the country. Oxfam also have a field office in Tanzania with a full time staff. Richer Sounds aims are based on making a profit and customer service; however Oxfam's aims are only based on health, safety, protecting and giving a normal life to the poor. Both businesses put they aim revolving around people, Richer Sounds aim is to put the customer's satisfactory rights first and Oxfam puts equal rights first so that all poor and needed are not judged by their gender or ethnic identity. Richer Sounds reward colleagues for working hard whereas Oxfam try to improve working conditions for people living in the poor. Oxfam is a contribution as part of the broader global movement against poverty and injustice. However Richer Sounds develop technologies which are Hi-fi retailing products which come onto the market, this therefore means that there may be new competitors entering the market and some leaving. From my researches I have researched that S.M.A.R.T objectives are least used in the business Oxfam as it is more related to help people in the poor and in disasters around the world, whereas Richer Sounds is related to making a profit and good value for money this shows the image of using figures. ?? ?? ?? ??
