Advertising Standards Another important business responsibility is to advertise campaigns and offers to gain publicity and profits. This implies that an organisation must stick to the rules of advertising. It is possible to advertise in many ways including the use of billboards and audiovisual appliances such as TV and Radio. Another common way of advertising is the use of Newspapers, but this is becoming more and more limited to gain publicity through being environmentally friendly. The first step to advertising is to take note of the competition and opposition. After that, the organisation, in this case Morrsions, has to generate a more economical yet sophisticated way to gain public notice.

Social Amenity All Morrisons' stores provide toilets and nappy changing units for babies. Some stored even store nappies in cases of emergency. Some Morrisons also provide parking for cars and disabled badge holder parking bays. Global Environment It is the responsibility of Morrisons to think wise about the environment. In doing so the company must always try to and be successful in being friendly to the environment, not only in the UK, but globally as well. It also has to be aware of the green concerns, by reducing: waste production, pollution, products which contain CFC. Sainsbury should also provide organic products, recycling of the wastes (e.g. plastic bags) and so on. ...read more.
