Small businesses are very important to the UK economy to keep it running well for many reasons, such as jobs and helping recover the economy from the recession. Small businesses are important to the UK economy because they provide jobs. In the recession there is a lack of jobs, especially in the public sector, so small businesses are vital for creating jobs for people. This helps the economy as more people will have money, so then more people will spend their money, which will then mean other shops may make money, and if enough jobs are taken up they may look for more workers, thus further improving the UK economy. Small businesses are also important for innovation and new ideas.

* Hierarchical: This type of structure is preferred for large commercial businesses that have a main goal of selling products, for example a shopping centre like Tesco. Reasons for this are because hierarchical structures have different levels of managers then a steep drop down to staff. This is relevant to Tesco as they have only a handful of managers in comparison to the thousands of staff they have. Roles in this structure are easier to follow, as you only do what you are employed for, i.e. staff work in the shops, and the manager’s work in offices.
