Tesco follow proper strategies and policies regarding the health, safety of their employees as they provide proper leave to their employees so that work load do not affect their health. Commented (Dew, 2008) to obtain good outcome employees should never be forced to work rather they should be influenced to perform better by giving good rewards, work environment, pay and safety facilities. Tesco few stores are far away from main city so employees of that stores are provided with different health and safety facilities in comparison of other store employees.

Different Economic Systems of Tesco and Burger king

Tesco and burger king allocate their resources in different economic system which are as mixed economic system, free market economic system, command economic system and traditional economic systems. Tesco and burger King allocate their different resources as

Command economic system- As Tesco is a retail industry so under command economy all the functions of Tesco are controlled by UK government and before taking any decision Tesco has to present the government of UK (Groznik, Krapež and Škerlavaj, 2011).

On the other hand, Burger king business activities are also monitored by UK government. All activities which Burger king is doing are planning to do in future have to planned as per the government norms and in command economic system government can interrupt in between of an business activity of Burger king.

Free market economic system - In free market economic system Tesco can perform all business activities freely without interruption of government but in an ethical manner without affecting surrounding. In contrast to this Burger king in free market economy performs all the restaurant activities with little intervention of government of UK.

Mixed Economic system – In mixed economic system the resource allocation of Tesco can done with slight involvement of UK government in comparison of free market economic system. Tesco and burger king both can allocate their resources mixed economy system easily in comparison of traditional and command economic system as government involvement is only regarding policies and other activities of organization (environment, 2015).  

Traditional Economic System- Tesco and Burger king are two different industries so the resource allocation in traditional economic system is also different of both organizations. In traditional economic system government involvement in business activities are same as mixed economic system but in this system government monitor and provide suggestion regarding overall business activity of Tesco and Burger king in UK.

Responsibilities of Tesco and Burger King regarding health, safety, environment, legal, social, legal and ethical

Fiscal and monetary policies are made by UK government to control and monitor the different organization as well as economy. UK government decides these policies as per the economic position of country and impact of their business activities on country’s economy. The different activities which are affected are interest rate, country’s reserve, exchange rates, tax rate of UK, government expenditure on business activities and etc (Guy, 2009). Business activities of both Tesco and Burger king affect UK fiscal and monetary policies. If UK government decided to change rate of interest via monetary policy then the business activity of both Tesco and Burger king will be affected (Makos, 2014). If UK government make changes in any policy like exchange rate, tax rate and etc business activities of Tesco and Burger King. Suppose if UK government raise the government expenditure in different business field then the sales volume of business will be affected.

As stated by (Haase and Franco, 2010) some of the competitors of Tesco are Sainsbury, Asda and Morrison’s in retail industry. In retail market there are several other companies but the main company is only Tesco as it holds more than 37% of the market share. Commented if any other organization changes their business activity then Tesco business activities will be affected and they will try to update their activities as per their market competitors to increase hold in market share (Langdana, 2009). Suppose any organization changes their policy then to stay in retail market Tesco will try to change their business activities. On the other hand the main competitors of Burger King are Mc Donald’s corporation, The Wendy’s Company. Burger king also changes their business activities if their competitors make changes in their business policies and activities.

Different market structure of Tesco and Burger King and different competition faced by both organizations

Tesco although has started its journey from UK has managed to expand the market place all through the world. Mainly, as mentioned by () the motto of Tesco is to generate maximum profit. The size the organizational ethics is essentially managed. It generally prefers the open market approach which seems to be important for the organizational development (Schnittfeld and Busch, 2015). By letting the liberal economic structure to be developed, Tesco has managed to increase its financial status as well. Tesco is having been strategically competed by other retailing industries like ASA, Morrison, Marks and Spenser and so on. This also let the organizational ethics to be developed.

For Burger King Open market policy proves to be essentially detrimental. In order to gain competitive advantages from McDonalds, Pizza Hut and other eatery organizations, the marketing approach of Burger King is really intrinsic (Miles, 2012). The company has also developed its strengths in the financial marketing sector at the same time.

Tesco being a retailing organization is literally armed by the different suppliers of different products of the market place. To cope up with the increasing demand of the market place, Tesco has decided to maintain the supply chain sophistically (Phillips and Freeman, 2010). At the same time, to gain the competitive advantages of the market, the price of the different products has been kept low in comparison with the other organization.

In the last few years, the demand of Burger like products has increased seriously. Therefore, the demand of the products from McDonalds, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Subways are literally in high demand. Therefore a proper supply chain management is needed to be used. Burger King in order to attract the focus of the market place applies different strategies to make people fascinated to their products.

Politically both the companies, Tesco and Burger King get patronized. The sales rule of expansion of the market place helps both the companies to expand their outlets from the urban areas to the outer and remote areas. Economically both the companies in the last few years have received an immense recession. But from the London Olympic both the companies are receiving a huge economical profit. (Phillips and Freeman, 2010) has stated that in 2013 Tesco was reportedly on the top of all the retailing companies over UK while Burger King came to the third position in the list of fast food eateries in order to earn the most. Socially the necessity of the Burger King and Tesco is essentially appreciated and evaluated in UK. The social approaches are really intrinsic to make the organizational approach to be managed. Technically both the organization tries to surpass their competitors. Letting the customers purchase and order online and cherish the products from their home has become an approach of technical development. Both the organizations are aware of the environmental issues (Schnittfeld and Busch, 2015). Approach of reduction in carbon footprint movement both these organizations has played a peer role. Finally, the legal norms of Britain are sophistically maintained by both the organizations. Following of the Labor Law, Industry Law and others are playing an essential role in developing of business.

Significance of International trade to UK organizations business

(Henson, 2009) commented on the fact that on the basis of International trade system Tesco PLC easily operates in other countries with very little market barriers. International trade has become significant that helps the company in free operation globally without any barriers. In order to increase the organizational competency in UK, international trading norms, rule and regulations are essential for fair trading purpose. From the version of (Hinloopen and Normann, 2009) international trade is also essential for Tesco as because this reduces the cost and increases the quality of the business. Moreover, this also increases the company’s activities all through the world with little barriers.

International competitiveness- (Hommel, 2012) commented that international companies like Wal-Mart and Mc Donald’s have a high competition in UK as well as internationally. So, these companies need to be considered in competition.

Tariff and Tax- According to (, 2015) if the tariff rate and market tax is increased, then Tesco and Burger-King will be facing a tough completion while trading globally.

Exchange Rates- (Jolly and Henson, 2008) had a view that a huge exchange rate will be a good threat to Tesco as well as Burger-King as it affects the ultimate revenue of the organization.

International Business Environment- According to the opinion of (Komori and Wellens, 2009) the international business environment includes political, economic, technological, legal as we;; as social factors that  directly impacts on the business environment of Tesco as well as Burger-King internationally.

The European Union formulates certain regulations and strategies that need to be followed by the member countries when conducting different business operations within the country and also outside its boundary (Lee, 2011). The major policies taken by the EU are enumerated as follows:

  • Regional policy
  • Employment policy
  • Training and education policy
  • Taxation policy
  • Inflation policy
  • Establishing the ‘ rules of the game’ policy
  • International policy

These rules and regulations impact the business activities of the member countries directly. In this case, Burger King and Tesco PLC will have to consider whether there is any such rule and regulation which might limit the activities of the companies (Lee, 2003). In order to conduct all their activities smoothly, Tesco PLC and Burger King needs to abide by the guidelines of the EU or else they will be penalized for violating the member countries agreement.


From the various references and situation analysis, it is quite evident that a business organization needs to consider several factors, both internal and external, which have a direct impact on the business activities. Tesco PLC and Burger King have succeeded in carrying out all the business duties diligently (Lin, 2014). Both the companies have provided improved customer service, employment strategies and proper disclosure of relevant information to the stakeholders. The retail industry is becoming more competitive with each passing day and as a result of this, Tesco and Burger King should insist on diversification of their products and services (Makhbul, 2012). In doing so, they will have to take care of the local as well as the international factors, in order to succeed in the long run.
