Business Level 2

Unit 1- purpose of business

Introduction about the Unit
This unit I will be focusing on business purposes and understanding the ownership of businesses which I’m currently working on now. Nowadays the only way is to earn money and so this is done by everyday business in the UK. Not only large businesses like Tesco, Asda or Sainsbury but even small businesses like corner shops, newsagents. They are all in this process. Also tutors and charity workers. I will be talking about business context in which organisations operate. The business purposes means I will find out about the wide range of business organisations which exist and how they have expanded into a big organisation. I had to identify the purpose of four different business organisations which then links to other tasks I had to do. I’ve chosen to do some more background research on my local area which is Enfield. To help me do this I have designed questionnaire to ask the different businesses that exist talk to them face to face in my local area. In the following pages I have included some of my research which is questionnaire and internet research. I have also included information about my area different resources. I will learn about the role of government and why the businesses are declining locally and nationally. To help me I will do more research over the internet or have a look at the guardian magazine. P1- Identify the purpose of four different business organisations.

These businesses will vary in terms of size from small businesses such as corner shops to very large multinational businesses such as restaurants.
