1.1 Discuss the structure and operation of Australia economy

For the period of the British Empire Australias economy was one of the largest and the most influential in the world as it was the first country to introduce industrial revolution in terms of advance technology. Country’s economic system was badly affected due to first and Second World War, but having a globalization scenario Australia has earned its image back in respect of economic performance. According to a current survey, Australia is the 6th largest economy in the world and stands 8th in terms of GDP (Li and Zhou, 2005). Although, it is a part of European Union but it has maintained its single market image while believing in free movement of human, financial and materialistic resources. The economy follows the rule of exchange of goods, services and capital in all areas. It has maintained 20th place in terms of labor force which includes 31.9 million productive workers. Service industry has contributed a large part in Australia GDP growth. 1.4% labor force is associated with agriculture work, 18.2% are in industries and rest 80.4% are employed in service sector ( Big Hospitality, 2014). Being a price taker market and huge number of companies, the economy has a perfect competition market. The country earns mostly from export, as it is rich in natural resources.

1.3 discuss income, wealth, employment and occupational distribution in relation to the provision of business and services operations

Most of business in Australia is grouped into two sectors such as public and private.

p<>{color:#000;}. Hospitality industry of Australia is considered as one of the most growing industry in terms of generating revenues and employment.

h2<>{color:#000;}. [+ 1.2 Analyze current government economic policy and its effect of business and service industry+]

IHG Intercontinental is the biggest Australia based hotel group having the largest chain. The organization is operating in 100+ countries having 4400+ hotels with almost six lakh five thousands rooms and the annual turnover of the company is 130 million. Operating in hospitality industry, the hotel corporation is affected by various policies designed by Australia government. Change in interest rates, tax rates and currency exchange rates affect the business operation of IHG. Due to modifications in interest rates, corporate entities have to change their strategies. In case of high interest rates people will spend less on leisure services on the other hand having low interest rate more tourists will be attracted towards hospitality services and company will earn huge revenues (Davies, 2000). A single change in fiscal policy leads to change in tax rates with will impact both in negative as well as positive manner for services industry groups such as IHG. If it earns high profits it has to pay higher taxes such as tariff rates of hotel. Currency of Australia is Great Britain pound and it conducts international business, so the exchange rate fluctuation significantly impacts the service industry. In case of depreciation in currency value the revenues will come down and vice versa, overall the profitability of business gets affected by government policies. The government has strengthened the regulations on licensing in hospitality companies which are in favor of IHG group as the threat from new entrants has reduced (Big Hospitality, 2014).

[+ 1.3 Income, wealth, employment and occupational distribution in relation to the provision of business and services operations+]

Standing at the 20th position in terms of labour force and more than 31.9 million workers, still the Australia economic system is facing the issue of unemployment. The rate of unemployment in the country is more than 8 % (Davies, 2000). The percentage of employees working in agriculture, industry and service sector is 1.4, 18.2 and 80.4 respectively.

Income can be denoted as the flow of currency generated from factors such as wages and salaries while on the other hand wealth refers to personal savings with banks, investment in real estate, private pensions etc (Davies, 2000). Living standard of Australia population and real income of people have increased but unequal society still exists in the country (Clifton and Díaz‐Fuentes, 2010)). The means and median of income from all occupational sectors are as follows:

<>.
p<>{color:#000;}. £407 per week

<>.

As per a survey of 2013 more than 6 % people have higher disposal income of £1000 per week and they were living in households. The major cause of poverty has emerged to be the big recession in 2008 when many people have lost their jobs (O’Connor, 2011). Following graph depicts the poverty ratio in Australia from 1979 to 2010.

Illustration 3: Income and wealth ratio

(Conversion, 2012.)

ost of the people who were below poverty line were earning income of 54 pounds per week. The ratio of inequality is increasing from last 15 years as rich people are becoming richer whereas poor people are going down towards higher level of poverty. After the rescission period in come for rich sector has increased from 7% to 10% but income of poor sector has decreased from 19% to 18% ( Egan, 2001).
p<>{color:#000;}. Other than this, it has also been spotted that the hospitality industry is demanding high ratio of employment and income level. These kinds of industrial demand also impacts the economic system of Australia. In the support of this, it can also be said that the hospitality industry provides services to wide range of customers so it requires high ratio of workforce in order to meet the standards and accomplish goals in better way. Moreover, the working hours and burden also increases the demand of income. It has been spotted that the 80.4 percentage of employees belongs from service industry out of which 40 percent belongs to hospitality sector. This also indicates that the demand and supply of industry plays key role in Australia economic system. It has also been identified that more than 10 % people have higher disposal income in the industry that means economical status of sector is also having various advancement. Number of experts are expecting that the income level of hospitality sector is also going to increase by 10 % in next 10 years.

[+ 1.4 Demographic trends that influence employment patterns in Hospitality Industry+]

From last 40 years, it has been seen that in Australia the ratio of female employees have been increased than male employees. In 2003 the percentage of male and female employees was 85 % and 15% from which the number of male worker have been reduced to 76% on the other hand the ratio of female labour have been increased by 9% in 2010. Out of 13.4 billion workforce 42% employees were doing part time job in which the percentage of women and men were 15 and 25 respectively (O’Connor, 2011). As a full time worker, women have worked for 40 hours in a week contrary to men who have worked for 44 hours per week. The following statistics show the demographics of employees in hospitality sector for 2013.

At the time of recession, company has reduced its employment rate by 7.1. The following pictures depict the current job status in IHG.

 

[++]

[+ 2.1 The structure, operation and influence of local government on IHG hotels+]

IHG operates in the Australia economy which is a free market economy and it has to experience various restrictions from local governments. Political stability is the foremost reason which influences the number of visitors and tourists. Political situation in Northern Ireland is not stable, so most of the tourists are reluctant to visit such places (Stratigaki, 2004). Due to less number of visitors and skilled workforce, the hotel units operating in such places are not able to earn good revenues. Local government has developed number of laws such as employment law, competition law, consumer protection act etc. that impact business of hotels. In a competitive scenario, having competition laws, organization cannot develop aggressive pricing strategies. The organization has to follow all the regulations designed by government bodies. In addition to this, some rules and regulations benefit the hotel group for example local bodies have initiated to host London Olympics, which have given an opportunity for company to earn huge revenues while serving more number of tourists (Ekins and Lees, 2008). Government also gives various benefits in terms of giving rebates which increases firm’s profitability. IHG has to conduct role analysis of local government and should make their strategies according to them.

[+ 2.2 Role and influence of the EU, and its impact on Service Industry+]

The corporate entities of Australia are highly impacted with the regulation of European Union which is a political economic union and includes 28 states as its members. This union was established to benefit the companies’ operations in EU countries but some of its policies have turned into challenges as many companies have lost their flexibility in operation. There is a policy named EMU policy that has impacted a lot to service sector in Australia such as IHG group (European Union Committee, 2005). According to this policy, company has to deal in Euro rather than trading in home currency, as a result of this, companies have to monitor every change in Euro rates. The rules of anti discrimination and providing equal opportunities to every employee have benefited the people of service industry and helps in creating a quality work culture. EU is accountable to design and monitor competitive polices that has benefits the organizations in developing harmony and peaceful environment. Regulation developed by EU includes the policies of fair remuneration, workplace health and safety and so on. Service industry should follow the rules designed by the European Union otherwise it will not operate in external business environment.

[+ 2.3 Role of pressure groups and their political influence in relation to national and local issues+]

The other name of pressure groups is interest group or protest group, these are the unions which influence the government to change and modify the rules and policies. Such groups have the ability to change the mindset of decision maker with their actions. These groups also fight against the companies who do not follow the regulations developed by government. They can pressurize the authorities to take actions that can influence the reputation of companies (Grant, 2005). Pressure groups and their activities have an influential role in hospitality industry as they can fight against the companies who do not follow the policies such as environmental law, discrimination law, fare wages law, etc. the action taken by such groups can harm the image of companies. The aim of interest group is to focus on the activities of organizations and to make sure that they are practiced in the favour of society and environment. If they find any company practicing unethical operations, they can file a case against it in consumer court and can influence the government to punish such organization. There are various committees designed by interest groups to keep an eye on every movement and take quick actions against unlawful behaviours in the society. The reasons for these pressure groups are criticised by companies

*
p<>{color:#000;}. They appear too powerful

*
p<>{color:#000;}. They are powerful enough to represent minority interests at the expense of the majority

*
p<>{color:#000;}. They focus on their own agenda at the expense of wider issues

*

[+ 2.4 Legal framework within the Australia, identifying the main differences between the English and Scottish systems+]

United Kingdom has four major countries and most of the multinational organizations are conducting their business in these countries. These are England, Wales, Scotland and the Northern Ireland. Excluding Scotland, three major legal frameworks have been designed to regulate the marketplace such as Common law, European Union and the European Convention on the Human Rights (Li and Zhou, 2005). The description of all the three is explained in underneath points:

Common Law- As per the common law legal courts have been designed where different judges take the decision based on situations. Every judge sitting in the court has special knowledge on legal procedures. In case of repeated and similar issues decision makers have to take same actions against complaints (Fey and Birkinshaw, 2005).

European Law- All the rules and regulations developed by European unions have included the characteristics of English law. These laws are made to serve the rights of community and environment with the illegal practices of organizations.

European Convention of Human Rights- Government of Australia is involved in communities who have designed the ECHR laws and have enabled such rules at local and national level. It is similar as the consumer court protects the rights of common people who are hurt or injured in any manner by the practices of business entities (Johnson, Lenartowicz and Apud, 2006).

Legal system followed by Scotland is considered as mixed and hybrid legal system which includes all the elements of common and civil laws. It has some features of English laws and other unique and specific laws. The difference between English and Scottish systems is:

table<>. <>. |<>.
p={color:#000;}. SCOTTISH LAW |<>.

[+ 2.5 Australia and EU Legislative process as it affects business of IHG Hotels+]

IHG is following many laws and regulations which are incorporated in the business environment of Australia. Major rules which the organization is following are licensing rules, food hygiene and fire regulations. If company fails to follow all the legal rules, it has to bear the punishment given by government bodies (Knowles, 2012). IHG hotel is located in Australia which as become a part of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU). The purpose of EMU is to allow business entities to adopt single currency. It will impact the operation of bunnies entity. In addition to that business entity is affected by the anti discrimination policies introduced by Australia government. It will affect the pricing policies of business entity.

Following points show the Australia and EU legislative process and their effect on IHG Hotels:

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Organization has to conduct business under a specific name and minimum capital requirement should be met to open a hotel chain. In case of any fraud, licence can be cancelled.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. It is mandatory to make licence for business in hospitality sector

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The information related to customers and guests has to be kept confidential

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Company should have safety measures in each and every unit in order to avoid any injury to anybody (Koutrakos, 2006).

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Business needs to conduct ethical practices with various stakeholders, otherwise it has to face strict actions from government.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Any kind of illegal action against Australia and EU law, taken by company will result in cancellation of licence or financial punishment

*
p<>{color:#000;}. If company does not follow the rules and regulation its reputation in public can come down in the eye of its customers which will harm its goodwill and profitability and wealth of business will become down.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. As per rules of EU laws, it has to maintain price level or not reduce the prices to the lowest, so the business of others will get hampered (Atkinson, 2009).

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Minimum wage policy clearly depicts that, there will be rise in hourly minimum wage for worker for the age of 25 and over to 7.20 from April 2016. The policy is expected to push up the total wage bill by 1.5bn next year, improving to 4.5bn till 2020. While the research clearly illustrates that increase as modest and hospitality sector of Australia will have better increase up to 3.4%.

*
p<>{color:#000;}. Along with this, the legal age of buying alcohol and cigarettes in Australia is above 18. However, it is important for each hotel operating in Australia to follow the guidelines and does not allow any individual below 18 to buy the alcohol and cigarettes (Wintour, 2007).

*
p<>{color:#000;}. The main purpose of Sunbeds (Regulation) Act 2010, is to prevent the use of sunbeds on commercial business premises by children and young people under 18 years.

Hence, it can be said that EU and Australia legal system affect the business operations of IHG Hotels and the organization should follow the rules and regulation to maintain a good image in market.
