The international economic status and its implications to employees

The international economic uncertainty has a direct impact on economic structure affecting everyone’s business life.
At the time of writing this article, the European consumers whether employees, investors or pensioners are very anxious due to the following reasons: increase in unemployment, extreme fluctuations of oil prices & the warning of possible American economic recession with negative impact upon worldwide stock exchanges, banks & investors, at the same time endangering pension fund returns.

According to OECD the number of employees who may become unemployed in the developed countries is expected to increase by 9% by the end of next year amounting to 34,8 million people due to overall credit financing problems causing turbulence on world economy.

On the other hand Greek NPOs keep on making big attempts in protecting the environment & society (NPOs globally through their efforts provide about 1,1 trillion dollars annually) but there seems that governmental institutions & firms worldwide do not give priority or the special attention needed to the above.

This problem was pointed out by the United Nations in the resent international economic forum, where it was stressed that «Corporate Social Engagement must be part of Core Business Strategy”. In addition Yang Yuanging, Chairman of the Board of Levono, the 1st in ranking private firm in Fortune 500 said that «™f you want to be a global company, a company that is built to last, not only should you consider how to contribute to your shareholders but you have to consider how to contribute to society».
The environmentally friendly production, the job security sentiment, fair rewards & equality at work, social security cover to all employees and their families and equal opportunities, pre-assume well-planned corporate structures and national self-protected and protective to citizens-employees-consumers policies from corruption, legal inadequacies or ill practices.
