The Business advisory service is providing its best services to the local businesses. It is also fully supporting the local businesses for finding out the best solution where ever it is required. The challenging task, which is to identify the impact of globalization, its effects on national economy and influence of the national and international institutions, further more how, the European Union is battling and providing the best plat form to the European community to build the economy and best practices in European institutions. These all above mentioned important features and factors are about to be discussed, in appropriate sequence forms.
Globalization has become a smart concept in the social sciences, a core statement the prescription of specialists in management, and catch phrase for journalists and politician of every stripe. It is widely asserted that to live in the era in which the great part of social life is determined by global processes, in which national culture, national economics and national borders are dissolving. Central to this perception is the concept of a rapid and recent process of economic globalization (Paul, h and Grahame, T. 1996, p. 1). Figure: 1

1.1.2 The Impact of Globalization on Business
According to (Myatt, 2006) Chief Strategy Officer, N2grwoth, who had the opportunity to transact business in various parts of Asia, the Middle East, Canada, Central and Latin America, Russia and former Eastern Bloc countries, India, and the European Community. Conducting business on a global basis has always been of great personal interest. However, the days of doing business abroad are no longer a luxury. The ability to conduct business internationally is an absolute necessity if to remain competitive in today’s marketplace. Who has described in comprehensive manners in following series, (Myatt, 2006).
1.1.3 Market size
In present era marketplace/size, conducting business worldwide is both defensive and offensive play. In examining the upside of going global, consider the complete size of national and international markets and could likely be found that the most of the potential customers live across the world, So even if double, triple, revenue of the business (Myatt, 2006).
Now assume the downside of not going global, if company is not monitoring those customers competition will be, they will not only take a first mover’s benefits of holding customer loyalty, brand recognition, but they will also tow-chain key partners and distribution agreements. As consumers continue to become more demanding and the world economy continues to flatten, there will soon be an expectation that you be able to serve multiple markets in a perfect and smooth fashion. Being a slow operation in the present era could eventually bring lost business (Myatt, 2006).
Example: Indeed globalization is being experienced at present arguably became most recognizable with the end of the cold war, and have continued their fast move with the development of third world countries and other emerging markets, establishment of free trade agreements like China andNorth American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) (Myatt, 2006).
1.1.4 Technological impact
The advance development of Internet and other source of communications, the growing multi-national indentation of business, the emergence of the European Community, the maintaining impact of the Euro on global currency markets, as well as the increased liquidity of more frequently and efficient capital markets (Myatt, 2006).
“The above referenced worldwide macroeconomic maturation, more commonly referred to today as “Globalization,” has served to stabilize business and financial markets in such a dramatic fashion that many industry pundits have yet to reach an understanding of the depth and breadth of the impact, it has had on lowering political, financial, and economic volatility” (Myatt, 2006).
1.1.5 Effects on Financial stability
If taking in to account the stabilizing factor, globalization has had on the world economy. Presently recession had great effects on trade downfall, oil pricing, down condition of markets, housing crisis, and overall cost of living could be challenging more than it is. Conventional economic theory would suggest that with many of the negative economic metrics in play today, interest rate environment could more closely resemble that of 1980 In fact, when the United States went through the Great Depression it was largely a result of having an isolated economy. This would show foreign investment from the G7, and countries like China, Japan, and Dubai would see it as an opportunity to affordably, acquire interests in United States companies (Myatt, 2006).
Example: “Emerging, markets in Eastern Europe, India, Latin America, China and the rest of Asia present scenarios for higher growth, even on a risk-adjusted basis. On an aggregate basis, the statistics are impressive. For example, currently 80 percent of the world’s population accounts for 20 percent of world GDP. By 2015, 50 percent of world GDP will be accounted for by emerging markets” (Myatt, 2006).
1.1.6 Trading demand:
The economic progress, as well as the existing global companies that bring employment oriented around intelligent and knowledgeable capital, is creating demand for modern, western style commercial real estate infrastructure, Core assets such as office, industry, retail, multi-family, etc (Myatt, 2006).
1.2 Influence of international institutions on organisations
1.2.1 The role of National and International Institutions and effects
Almost every major national or international commercial business relies on subsidiaries or strategic alliances to obtain a comparable degree of influence and flexibility. As one measure of their scale, almost a third of total international trade now occurs exclusively within these multinational businesses. With the arrival of such global firms, international conflict has, to some extent, moved from nations to these firms, with the battle no longer among nations over territory but rather among firms over their share of world markets (Intriligator,2006,p. 25).
[Source]: (The European Union, 2008)
1.2.2 IMF, World Bank and Trade
The failure of the IMF, World Bank and WTO to represent and further the interests of the developing world, through their one-size-fits-all approach, has led to the collapse of trade negations, widespread criticism of their effectiveness, and bitter international protest. Many countries are rejecting the neoliberal ideologies of the ‘unholy trinity’ with intensifying calls for their reform or decommissioning (Share the world resources, 2011).
1.2.3 Mounting IMF Debts for Countries in Crisis
The global economic crisis in 2009, which came on the heels of a food and fuel crises in 2008, forced many low-income countries to take on new debt through no fault of their own. The growing climate crises, which were once again originated in the global North, also disproportionately affects the world’s poorest countries, and has resulted in new debt as countries borrow to prepare for and recover from climate-related disasters (Gurría,2006).
In the wake of the global economic crisis, the G20 acknowledged the impact of these crises on poor countries and directed the international financial institutions to create better mechanisms to assist poor countries cope with such exogenous shocks. The World Bank’s International
1.2.4 The role of Organisation for economic co-operation and development (OECD)
The role of the OECD is to play in managing globalization – understanding it, explaining it, analyzing its effects, and making policy recommendations to maximize its benefits and to tackle its challenges. Another key aspect of the OECD today is the globalization of own activities, as it works with 70 non-member economies in particular the so-called BRICS — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (Gurría,2006).
[Source]: (OECD, 2011)
The last aspect role is to explain globalization. As to increase public concern about the process, and experience the negative side of globalization.
One of the great challenges for the policy agenda for reaping the full benefits of globalization is the so-called political economy of reform. How can governments implement the necessary reforms? In many countries, well-designed reforms have failed to be implemented or sustained due to the near-term political costs that they entail, and the fact that opponents are vocal and well-organised while benefits tend to be more diffuse and delayed (Gurría,2006)
1.2.5 The role of G20 Reviewing globalization and economic Growth
“A New Agenda for the G20 (September 23, 2009) One definition of crisis is “turning point,” and that is where we find the global economy in September 2009 as G20 leaders assemble in Pittsburgh”.
This seems to be that G20 would play outstanding role to have grip on global recession. It has delivered a four-part agenda to overcome on to the recession. It is focusing on the following agenda, which might be helpful to give new economic platform, like business, academic world and the policy community—offer their visions of how the G20 nations can put efforts together work together to renew globalization and economic growth in critical situation. Sources of growth and the role of innovation, the role of financial regulation, trade in restoring growth and Educating, a workforce for the existing century’s economy, Social and political, challenges of renewing globalization” (Atlantic Council, 2011).
The connections among these big issues are complicated. However, G20 is continuously struggling with its holistic approach. Moreover, global has great expectations produce positive results in economic progress (Atlantic Council, 2011).
1.2.6 The rise of the BRICs and the future of globalization
This is very important to high light the importance of four major countries, in economic growth of the globalization that are Brazil, Russia, India and China. Although there is lot of distance among these countries but due technological era, there is hardly gap among them. These countries are rich from human skills and natural and technological resources. China and India are marching very smartly with self-determination, self-confidence and having vision to be the first in the world matter of concerned, as china is second and India is fourth or fifth largest countries in the world economies. Likewise, if Brazil and Russia honor with few other emerging economies such as South Africa, and large share of the world’s population and a growing share of the world’s economic activity (Dehejia, 2010). Western countries are considering that BRICs may cause of declination of west but this is not the case, reason being the increased international integration through business and finance, would be very fruitful by working mutually (Dehejia, 2010).
1.3 Role and responsibility of European Union membership on the workforce
1.3.1 Policies and best practices of the European Union
The European Union is a collaborative effort between 27 European countries to form a mutually beneficial economic and policy community. Since 1993, the EU has worked to increase economies and spread human rights advances worldwide. The goals of the European Union include uniting Europe toward common goals and providing aid to developing nations, (conjecture corporation2003 – 2011).
The European Union member countries have authorized some of authorities in some policy area, fisheries, culture, which can be seen in the following shape for the better improvement and change (Europa, 2011).
1.3.2 Education, Training, Youth
Top-quality education and training are vital if Europe is to develop as a knowledge society and compete effectively in the globalizing world economy. Education policy as such is decided by each EU country, but together they set common goals and share best practices. In addition, the EU funds numerous programs allowing its citizens to make the most of their personal development and the EU’s economic potential by studying, training or doing voluntary work in other countries (Europe, 2011).
1.3.3 Protecting, preserving and improving the world environment
“The European Union is considered to be the unique environment standards in the world, developed over the long time to address a wide range of issues. The priorities are fighting against the climate change, preserving biodiversity, reducing health problems from pollution and using natural resources more responsibly. While aimed at protecting the environment, these goals can contribute to economic growth by fostering innovation and enterprise” (Europa, 2011).
1.3.4 Employment and Social Affairs
“In the era of this new economy are based on lot of knowledge rather than raw materials or physical labor. To do well in the competition from new rising economies, Europe must create the jobs needed by a dynamic, knowledge-based society. This requires investments in education and in science, as well as in employment policies geared to keep up with the pace of change and see the EU through the global economic crisis. EU countries work closely together to meet these challenges, sharing objectives and policies which are mutually supportive” (Europa, 2011).
1.3.5. Economic stability and growth globally
“Within a single market and major trading bloc like the EU, it makes good sense to coordinate national economic policies. This enables the EU to act rapidly and coherently when faced with economic challenges such as the current economic and financial crises. Sixteen countries have pushed coordination even further by adopting the euro as their currency” (Europa, 2011).
1.3.6 A European Economic Recovery Plan
Since in the mid of 2008, the occurrence of recession, European Union has been engaged itself with an economic recovery plan aimed at proposing both European and global solutions. On one side, the plan proposes short period action at the level of businesses, individual and banks. On the other side, it aims, in the longer period, to develop a clean economy with low carbon dioxide emission that is capable of boosting up the future growth (Europa, 2011).
The European Economic Recovery Plan is a response to the global economic crisis that affected the actual economy in 2008. It sets out the large lines of a coordinated European approach, which involves:
Quickly, inspiring, demand; Supporting the most susceptible people, affected by the economic downfall; Europe to take star in t competitive leg; Taking advantage of this period of disruption, in order to make faster the establishment of a cleaner economy, with more worries, for the environment (Europa, 2011).
The European Commission proposes that Member States and the European Union agree on an immediate budgetary impetus amounting to EUR 200 -13824. The plan is intend to operate at both European and global platform (Europa, 2011).
1.3.7 Solutions at financial market and macro-economic level
The instability in the financial markets triggers the crisis in the real economy. It is important that the banks should re-focus on their primary activities of providing liquidity and supporting investment in the real economy. The European investment Bank will increase its yearly interventions guidelines in the European Union by some EUR 15 billion in the form of loans, impartial, guarantees and risk-management method financing, as well as investment from private sources (Europa, 2011).
Expenditures policy will have a role to play in steadfast economies and stable demand. This recovery will take place within the framework of the Stability and Growth Pact and the priorities of the Lisbon Strategy (Europa, 2011).
1.3.8 Solutions at global level
The Plan aims to reinforce collaboration between the European Union and its internationalpartners in economic and climate matters.
The European Union must also maintain its commitments to developing countries in the context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and Overseas Development Assistance (ODA), in particular by developing new instruments to help those countries deal with the direct consequences of the crisis whilst maintaining sustainable development (Europa, 2011).

3.2 Environmental issues of British Airways and impact on economy and necessary actions
The British Airways is trying to shape the best practices, which could be very useful to build the economic conditions of the organization as follow;
3.2.1. Climate change policy:
The organization is putting their efforts, by participating in mission of reduction of carbon dioxide emission globally. To cut the emission company has to adopt one of the options,
Example: organization has to buy the low cost emission technology. Alternatively, to buy the allowance from other companies of their non-exceeded, allowance. Above mentioned both be taken as completely (British Airways, 2011).
3.2.2 Carbon emission trade against Green taxes:
The British Airways is putting extra taxes on their customer to utilize the investment for reducing the emission, with name of Green taxes. However, research has highlighted that Green taxes had minor effects on reducing the carbon emission. Therefore, Green taxes have not been so successful. However, it is emphasize, that organizations should adopt the low emission technology practice (British airways, 2011).
However, there is need to take positive steps like, global agreement, International air transport association, UK sustainable Aviation groups, which are working on this mission. Furthermore, European Union carbon-trading scheme, have been taken into aviation industry by 2011 (British airways, 2011).
3.2.3 Waste and its impact on environment and actions:
To counter the waste problems and its worst effects, like diseases, landfill, etc. The organization is trying to practice and find out the ways like; all workers will make use of internet and computers. The airplanes arriving on airport, the newspapers are recycled. There are several other recycle centers (British Airways, 2011).

The noise had always been worst effects on environment. The population, which is living near the airports, has great concern about the noise.
The British Airways is trying their best to complete the goal by reducing the noise track by 15% by 2015. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will be managing this approach.
However, tow ways are to be experienced to reduce the noise. For take-off to use the single engine taxi, airspace management, airport management, and design the use of aircraft secondary, power units Same as for landing, the efforts are continue like gentle landing approach with constant speed (British Airways, 2011). This is also to put into consideration that
Nighttime’s movements avoided. It is trying to maintain the procedure to avoid take-off at night. However, it should focus while adopting the new scientific methods to deal with problem.
3.3 Measure that exist to improve workplace and health safety practice
3.3.1 European environmental legislation and developing economic conditions
The European Union is trying to use more alternates instead of many existing resources, for examples recycling. However, prices needed to be changed, to attract and reflect the environmental cost.

P4).
4.2 Diversity of the British Airways

The main point of impact is to rotate the employees in job rotation to gain more experience and beat the challenges.
The discussions, could be more useful that how, harassment issue can be resolved. How awareness, is be raised? Furthermore, it is also is to be considered why and how bullying takes place. There is only one way that mediation can resolve these issues.

The British Airways is more concern about to bring in to the knowledge environmental issues with its associates and suppliers, and backing them up to practice alike policies. While considering and negotiating on environmental agenda with customers, employees, and outer stakeholders. The important features of environmental progress clearly endorsed. The Group promotes the submissions of good environmental practice within the organization and its manufacturer, and monitors acquiescence with this policy (British Airways, 2010).
4.3.3 Customers’ opinions, recommendations and organization actions
The customers’ opinions and views observed strictly through ‘Think customer survey. This is self-governing market research involving large numbers of customers on monthly basis. The organization also pins down the customer views on organization presentation with rival, as well as universal airlines. The customers are the backbone of any business organization (British airways, 2011).
However, the target, which was set out in 2009/10, not achieved. Because of the slightly decrease in satisfying the customer for change catering services. The need is to make strong bridge, between British airways and mighty customers. This will be more fruitful for both of them. It will bring more business to the organization and great satisfaction to the customers (British airways, 2011).
This has come into conclusion that in this highly demanding competitions era globalosation has great impact on the economy, the role of national and international organisation remains under criticism and argumentive.
