Project description

Political Factors

Is there any general legislation that affects businesses in a country?

Is there any specific legislation for your company’s specific industry?

Has the company been involved in any recent court case or legal procedings?

Has your company benefitted from any specific policies that may help the business (the government may have decided to invest in infrastructure that may help a business for example).

Does your company receive any specific help such as subsidies/tax incentives etc?

Is your company working in a protected industry (ie does the government limit the amount of imports or competitors from foreign countries in the market).

Technological Factors

With technological factors you may consider some of the following questions (once again these are indicative questions and are not exhaustive):

What technology/capital does the company use to produce?

Has there been a change in the production process (e.g. has the production process become more automated)?

Has your company used social media (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn etc.)? If so, how has the company used them? For marketing purposes perhaps?

Has the company developed new sales channels? (i.e. online sales)

Are there changing (increasing/decreasing) costs of energy use in using new technologies?

Referencing Requirements:

the prof told me that we can use the reference list and some information of this source as it is reliable:

we will link every source as it’s a wiki,that’s why I’m ordering very high number of resources as he required. You can use books but we prefer academic online resources. And if it’s a book please provide the page number.I will be reviewing all sources (academic/internet) that you use for this project. Falsification is considered academic misconduct. If you provide information, you must provide a valid source. This source must be visible to me.



Political factors include government policies, legislation and foreign influences, particularly from

the European Union (EU). Several political factors surround the issue of immigration.

Legislation on immigration comes both from the UK government and from the EU. For example,

workers from all EU countries, except Romania and Bulgaria, have the right to live and work in

the UK. Since the expansion of the EU in 2004, around 700,000 Polish workers have registered

to work in the UK, boosting the UK workforce, enabling the economy to expand.

Immigration is an emotive issue, which often generates sensational headlines in tabloid newspapers. These include allegations that migrant workers ‘take’ British jobs or that they ‘undercut’ pay levels, working for less than British workers. The data available does not support these allegations. UNISON believes that if migrant workers are part of a trade union membership and can benefit from properly negotiated pay rates, this type of misinformation will not arise. As part of its campaign, UNISON aims to dispel the negative views on migration. Migrant

workers play an extremely important role in providing many needed services. This provision would not be possible without migrant workers. Government statistics prove that the overall effects of net migration into the UK have been positive for UK businesses and the economy.

In areas of high migrant populations, there are greater pressures due to, for example, insufficient housing and health provision. The migrant workers population is not evenly spread across the UK – the majority of migrants are in London and the South East, according to government statistics. In addition, because of the short-term nature of much of the work, the pattern of migrant workers is not easy to track. Government and local authorities need to be able to invest in services sufficiently quickly to meet the demand. It is important to understand that the same pressures on services would occur if large numbers of UK workers suddenly moved to an area.

One of the most important political factors in UNISON’s external environment is employment legislation. UNISON aims to ensure that these laws meet the needs of workers by lobbying the government when it feels the law needs changing. In a recent

report, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) found that many employers were ignoring employment law. Some companies were not paying their workers the minimum wage, while others forced workers to work longer than legally permitted under the working time directive. It can be very difficult for migrant workers to get legal advice when they have problems at work. This is partly due to language barriers. Many also fear losing their jobs if they complain. Like other low-paid workers, they rely on legal advice, paid for by the government through legal aid. Reduced funding for legal aid and for immigration advice in particular has resulted in fewer solicitors taking on legal aid cases. Many migrant workers seeking help have been turned away. As a result, UNISON has put in place legal advice and information services to help migrant workers understand their rights.


Changes in technology, including a rise in automation in the workplace and the development of the internet, have transformed the way in which many businesses work:

• Automation of production processes in factories means less-skilled workers are needed.

• The internet has opened up a need for information processing in purchasing and data management areas, for example, in online shopping. Many migrant graduates have come to fill these more specialised vacancies.

• The biggest technological factor affecting migration has been the increased availability and reduced cost of transport. Over 75% of migrants fly into the UK, most using budget airlines.

• Advances in online money transfers enable migrant workers to send money home easily and securely. This makes them more willing to migrate. A United Nations statistic shows that migrant workers send home over twice the amount given in international aid to developing countries.

• Improvements in telecommunications have made it easier for potential migrants to discover what job opportunities are available. Through online chat rooms, they gain information and advice from other migrants from their own country and can keep in contact with friends and family in their home countries.
