As part of our global operation our company currently uses labor in many different countries. In this memo the major issues and elements concerning the aspects of labor forces and the influences it has on international business operations will be addressed. This memo will also include information concerning labor quality, quantity, and mobility, as well as minorities, the labor market, and labor unions.
Let’s start with labor quality. In any international business operation it is very important that labor quality be taken into account.

Employees that are not properly trained can result in poor quality of products and service, in turn that reflects badly on the company.

That brings us to labor mobility. Labor mobility may affect on labor quality and labor quantity in reference to the relocation of educated and skilled potential employees from one country to another seeking employment. Many people will often relocated in order to ensure their financial and job security. Also our company’s requirement may ask that
personnel move from one site to another to fulfill our staffing needs.
When talking about labor forces we must also examine the impact that minorities have. Many countries have rules and regulations concerning the equality of employment amongst ethnic and other minority groups. Sometimes the relationship in the workplace can be affected by issues with minority groups. In our company’s relationship with markets in other countries the needs, benefits, concerns, impact of minorities are a very crucial factor that must be addressed.
This brings us to the labor market. The labor market is a place that brings together employers and people who are looking for employment . Workers compete for jobs and employers compete for workers. Our company will have to be well informed on how foreign country's labor markets work or how they are being developed. In any location the labor market can be a critical factor in determining how feasible it is to establish and maintain operations in that region.
Finally that brings us to labor unions. Labor unions both domestic and international must be an important element when examining international operations. A local union force can create difficulties and issues in the workplace. On the other hand a supportive and involved union can be a very valuable asset for our company especially when it comes to expanding further in the international arena.
I hope that the points made in this memo are of value to your internship. This should give you an awareness of our organization and our communication and trade with international countries.
