Political One of the political changesthatcouldaffectthe operationsof Tescoiscountriesthatare close to each othersuchas Englandand Scotland,if theywere tohave a disagreementitmaybe harderfor resourcestobe transportedbetweenthe twocountries.Forexampleif Tescohadmanysuppliersin Scotlandthentheywill have more trouble acquiringtheirsupplies. The employeeswithin Tescoare affectedbythisbecause theywill have alimitedamountof resourcesavailable if mostof their suppliescome fromScotland. Anotherpolitical factorthatcan greatlyaffect Tescoisa change of electedparty,the reasonthisisa bad effectisbecause itchangesalot of thingand while there isthe same partytheyare able to make predictionsontheirfuture linesof operation.A change of party wouldmeanthatTesco’s future planswill have tobe puton holdor adjusted because the actionsof the new partywouldbe unpredictable.Thiscanaffectthe directorsof a businessbecause itmeansthattheirmainplanscan go drasticallyoutof proportion. The problemwithTescooperatingin bothChinaandthe UK isthat bothhave differentlawsandif theyare tryingto carry out the same or similaroperationsinboth countriesandif changeswere tohappento bothpolitical parties,itcouldbe adifficultthingfor Tescoto combat. Anotherpolitical factorthathasa large effecton Tescoisa rise intaxationforVATand corporation tax.This wouldmeanthattheywouldmake fewerprofitsbecause theirmoneywill be reducedthat theyreceive.A decrease inthistax canalsomake iteasierforbusinessesbutitisunpredictable whenor howit isgoingto change.

Anotherlegal factorthatwill have a large effecton Tescoisthe rise in minimumwage;thiswould meanthat the employeesinTesco wouldhave tobe paidmore moneyinorderto meetthis. Therefore the businesswill make fewerprofitsbecause theyhave topaymore.Theymayalsoneed to increase the pricesof theirproductstocombat thiswhichwill decrease customersatisfaction.

If Tescosellsitemsatacounterthenthey will have toadjustbecause olderpeoplemay needtobe talkedtoina differentway. Anothersocial factorthat can affect Tescois a decrease onmoneythatthe governmentspendsto increase education.If lesspeopleare able togo to universitythenlesspeoplehave better qualifications.ThismeansthatTescowill have tolowertheirexpectationsandrecruitlesspeopleas it will be harderforthemto findfullyqualifiedemployees.Thiscanaffectthe people thatare applyingfora jobpositionina Tesco because itreducesthe chance of themgettingthe job. Anothersocial factorthat will have alarge affecton Tescoisthe viewpointsof the population;if they were togo all ecofriendlythentheymayfeelbadabout Tescohavinga highcarbon footprint.
