...- Reasons for employing people Entrepreneurs setting up a new business need to employ people for a number of reasons: - Only in the smallest business does the owner have the capacity to carry out all the tasks necessary to provide the finished product or service. In most business, it is necessary to employ people. As a business grows, it needs to ensure that it can meet demand by increasing the number of staff it employs. - An entrepreneur setting up a new business will not often have all the skills required to run a business. The same applies to a partnership, or even a limited company. Most businesses require specialist expertise in relation to the production of their goods or services, the marketing of them, and the management of their finance and will therefore need to employ appropriate people. - Some businesses are seasonal in nature; the demand for their products will peak at certain times of the year and drop away at other times. Examples are strawberry growers (spring and summer), cafes and restaurants in tourist areas (summer), and gift shops (Christmas). A business needs to ensure that it can meet demand during a peak season by employing additional staff. - A start-up business that wants to expand will need to consider outsourcing, training existing staff or taking on new staff. - Types of employee used in small businesses People can be employed in a number of different ways and a business owner needs to think carefully about this in order to ensure that......

Moreover, Slovenian and Australian economies exhibit some distinctive characteristics which offer an opportunity to explore for economic contingencies that may affect SMA usage.

Feasibility Report

...Marie Breban Rémi Mouhadjer Emilie Dangibeaud Alexiane Salimon Marine Weber EXECUTIVE SUMMARY We wanted to remedy to the expensive fees paid by IESEG students for their textbooks, so we conducted a survey to know whether they would be interested in a secondhand shop for their books. According to the results, the sample seems enthusiast about this project. INTRODUCTION When we started studying at IESEG, we were all surprised by the prices of the books. Indeed, we all had to pay about €300 for the textbooks of the first year. Throughout the year, we realized that textbooks were not useful for everyone and that we do not know what we are going to do with them at the end of the year. So we came up with the idea to implement a second-hand shop for the textbooks called “AdoptABook” in charge of receiving used books and reselling them. Our association will buy the books sold by students from previous years, we will store them, and we will resell them to new students. FINDINGS The market we targeted is a niche market. Indeed, the only customers targeted are: * IESEG students (including exchange students) * Both from Paris and Lille * Who don’t mind using used books Therefore, we have no competition (monopoly). Here are the results of our analysis: Our sample is only composed of: * IESEG students with a majority of women (72.4%) * Aged between 18 and 20 (77.6%) * In first......
