To buy and sell our products responsibly- so our customers know that everything they buy is produced under decent conditions, and everyone involved is treated fairly. 5. Our aim is to be as strong in non-food as in food. This means offering the same great quality, range, price and service for our customers as we do in our food business. 6.

Conclusion

In a tall structure there are many functions and job roles which support the company by Human Resources it will support the company if they recruited the right staff that do the job effectively this will then help the company to succeed its goals. In a flat structure there are fewer functions but this means that it allows more flexibility with the company and allows more movement within the organisation so for example if the Managing Director is absent the person below can take over so therefore the company will still be functioning. ________________ ________________ Task 4f: ________________ Conclusion ? what does a correctly organised structure allow the organisation to achieve? ________________ An organisation can be structured in many different ways, depending on their objectives. The structure of an organisation will determine the modes in which it operates and performs. Organisational structure allows the CEO of Tesco allocates responsibilities for different functions. Also a high correctly organised structure allows the organisation to achieve their aims and objectives this is because a structure easily allows the aims and objective it clearly shows what needs to be achieved by each functional area. ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ ________________ Mrs Watterston Edexcel Business BTEC Level 2 2010/2011 ...read more.
