Business Studies Recap Day 13 - HR Objectives

 On day 13 of the Year 12 Recap we turn our attention to the Human Resources (HR) department of the business and discuss the objectives that a business should have in mind when managing the business’s workforce.


For most businesses, it is crucial to have some element of human input into the production process to combine with the level of sophistication that technology brings the company. However, unlike technology and machines, humans cannot be calibrated to a specific setting and left unmonitored. The management team of a business needs to organise, motivate and develop their staff to maximise performance and ensure the company can achieve its corporate objectives. This can be a challenging aspect of running a business; as every worker reacts to workplace policies in a different way.

Business Studies Recap Day 12 - Price and Income Elasticity of Demand

 On day 12 of the Year 12 Recap we look at elasticity and the different forms of elasticity you need to be comfortable with at A-level Business.


 

Elasticity measures the responsiveness of a change in one variable to a change in another variable. The business application of elasticity is that a firm can use the price elasticity of demand (PED) and income elasticity of demand (YED) to their advantage when deciding upon their own strategy. If a firm knows the PED value of their product they have an insight behind the expected net impact on business revenue from a change in price. This forms the basis for a firm’s pricing strategy. The YED value helps a firm establish the expected change in demand from a change in household disposable income. This elasticity measure is important for a firm to be able to recognise how well placed it is in operating in different economic scenarios and events.

Business Studies Recap Day 11 - Pricing Strategies


  On day 11 of the Year 12 Recap, we look at the different pricing strategies that firms can charge.

 



If firms are to maximise the commercial success of a product, the right price for the product needs to be charged. However, this can often be more difficult for a firm than you might expect. The right price to set is not a static decision which can be taken – it depends on the competitive environment, the business’s current strategy and the external environment the business operates in. Therefore, firms have many different pricing strategies available to them that they can adopt.
