Page 8 Introduction I'm going to investigate two contrast types of business organization. I have chosen for a company in a private sector and a organization in the voluntary sector. First I'm going to tell something about the range of the different businesses. That's about where they operate, what they want to achieve and the sector of business activity they are involved to. After that I'm going to tell about the purposes of the business. That's about that the business provide a product or a service that they supply to someone else. At least what kind of ownership the business has. One of the businesses that I chose is the retailer New Look. That's a company in the private sector.

Otherwise the retailers won't get their products. The suppliers are like wholesalers, they make their products for retailers so that the businesses can sell it to their customers. Suppliers also influence what New Look offers, because they offer New Look their products. The price of the products of suppliers are very cheap sold to the New Look, but they want to make profit so they sell it more expensive to the customers. Suppliers find it very important that the businesses they deliver products to appreciate them. The owner is very important for the New Look. Without an owner a company can't continue. There is a trade union for the employees, so this also has an influence on the New Look, because of that, the employees has a couple of rights. Like how many they can work and that it's sure that they get paid. The New Look need to adjust its market.

Conclusion

The governments helps the organization to achieve their goal through subsidies. Conclusion The agreement between the two contrasting types of business organization is that the New Look and the International Save the Children Alliance are both international, global organizations. The differences between the organizations is that the New Look is private and they are running for profit. The International Save the Children foundation has a lot of owners and they are not running for profit, they're in a voluntary sector. The customers of New Look get a product and the customers of the International Save the Children foundation has to give money, but they don't get something personal back. The employees are not very different, only the New Look doesn't have voluntaries. The trade unions and employer associations are the same. The agreement between the local and national communities is that at both organizations the communities influence each other. At the International Save the Children the government helps them, but that doesn't is that way at the New Look.
