External environmental labour-related risk factors influence the relationship between management and the work force of an enterprise. It is therefore of prime importance to consider these labour-related risk factors in order to be able to take a comprehensive financial investment decision. The risk factors concerned come from the political, economic, social and technological environments.

The responses with reference to these labour-related risks in manual and knowledge worker enterprises are presented simultaneously and significant similarities and differences are highlighted.
