4/15/18Components of a Modern Work Environment

Every modern working environment consists of a lot of people who walk in and out of the business premises or the organization’s offices. The different types of people have a different interest within the organization and as such, they visit the premises to conduct different types of activities which are defined according to the purpose of results of the visit. Ideally, there are significant motives that drive people to visit a given formal establishment. In the organization in which I work, a different type of people including workers and customers. Each individual portrays a different interest within the organization. As such, one can make use of classification or division to categorize the different individuals.

For the purposes of this paper, classification or division strategies will be used to define the different types of people who visit the business establishment where I work. However, the paper will focus solely on the back end of the operations which are not open to each and every individual. The term back-end alludes to the nature of the business operations which are not accessible by the client. Consumers are always concerned with the product and not the production. For the evaluation of this specific business environment, the back end will be considered with the specific interested parties which enable the provision of business services to the consumers.

The business establishment that I work in is concerned with the provision of internet services to homeowners or residential consumers and office spaces in the central business district of a nearby town. Ideally, the business is attracting a lot of people who have different interests in the business. However, within the perspective of production, that is the delivery of business services, only three type of people are concerned with such. The three groups of people include the outsourced personnel, investors and the employees. Each of these groups presents a specific interest in the business and prove to be important parts of the whole process of accomplishing various business operations.

The first individuals to consider are the employees. The employees form the most important part of the business. Employees are at the core of the business operations. They perform different duties as described in their job description or according to the situation at hand. These employees include the subordinate and business managers. All employees have different roles within the business organization. Their roles, duties and responsibilities include customer care, finance, human resources management, security, ICT, audit among others. The sole interest of the employees falls upon the financial benefit that is awarded to them at the end of every month with regard to the nature and quantity of the services provided. Some employees work on a full-time basis while others work part-time.

Another party that comes into the premises of the business organization are the investors. Investors are people who finance the various business operations in return they are given shares in the business establishment. Each investor has a significant amount of shares under his or her name. Ideally, each investor owns a part of the business. As such, the interest the investor has in the business is much understood and significant to the business itself. Therefore, investors play a very important role in the business. In view of this, investors come into the premises of the business establishment solely for the purpose of looking at their interests in the organization. This might range from looking at the current state of business operations to see if they are being conducted in the right manner up to the consumer’s satisfaction. To an investor, better satisfactory provision of services translates to an increasing number of consumers which translates to more sales and finally more profits. This brings the discussion to the issue of what do the investors have to gain.

The benefit of the investors comes when the company declares the number of profits made for a given financial year. After all business costs are catered for, part of the net income for the organization may be divided into different sections which may be used for growing the business and some to pay off the investors through the annual dividend. The investors are therefore benefiting in a financial way from the business organization. Their financial benefit is a result of the financial input they have placed in the organization. Apart from the dividend that they receive annually, quarterly or semi-annually, the investors also profit form the organization through the sale of stock market shares. The shares they hold in the organization are quite significant as they represent that the investor owns a part of the business. According to the value of the business organization with respect to its profitability, the price of the shares rises considerably making it economical to sell the shares while their prices are at the highest in a long while.

The last component of the discussion is the outsourced personnel. Businesses in the modern world face different additional needs during the conduct of their daily operations. These additional needs are met by outsourced services from other businesses. These services may include the cleaning a security of the office premises. In view of these needs, the organization outsources the providers of related services in exchange for an agreed upon fee as a payment for services rendered. Outsources personnel present another group of the people who walk in and out of the premises of the business organization.

Indeed, an organization has different types of people moving in and out of their business premises. Apart from the group that comes to consumer services offer by the organization, the other groups of people are namely the investors, outsourced personnel and the employees. Each of these groups is related to the operations of the organization in one way on another. Their absence will be noted or significantly felt by other groups in the organization. As such, the role played by each party and their interest in the organization is detrimental to the successful completion of the operations.
