the internal and external factors that impact on the employment relations
almullaonline Started The Discussion:
Dear all

I have to write a CIPD report about employee relations
one of the questions is about the "the internal and external factors that impact on the employment relations"

i have this answer:

Internal :
Management willingness to tackle matters in a systematic an careful manner
Degree of which employees conduct themselves in a professional manner.
Whether employees can inflict costs on the organization, e.g. are the employees concerned dealing with key process
Whether there is an alternative workforce available within the organization
The market situation of the organization, i.e. are sales increasing or decreasing
Whether employees (as a group) are aware of their potential power
Whether the group of employees has previously exercised its power and depending on the outcome of the event

Economic and legal polices of governments
o Policies that are directed towards the creation of full employment maximize economic growth and weaken the bargaining power of the employer relative to that of employee
o In an expanding economy the demand for labor services increases causing the price of those labor services to rise increasing bargaining power of employees
o On the other hand, policies that restrain economic growth cause demand for balance of bargaining power tips if favour of employers
o Government could also pass laws that restrict the activities of trade unions thus limiting employees bargaining power

Technological change
o Technological developments have in some cases destroyed jobs, doe-skilled jobs, blurred demarcation between exiting jobs and created an alternative lower-paid workforce, these developments have increased the bargaining power of employers
o However, in other sectors of the economy technological developments have created new jobs and made some industries more capital intensive, increasing the bargaining power of employees

o Countries have become more interdependent economically than before due to the breakdown of barriers of trade hence they cannot become self reliant
o Governments have been unable to control information, technology and capital flow across the boundaries
o Markets are now not regulated allowing the goods, services and capital to integrate like the European Union
o Companies are becoming global entities which are forming the global webs due to de-nationalization of firms
o The firms have discovered the importance of remaining competitive in the market by producing high quality services an goods
is there and more suggestions?

thanks in advanced :)
