oa South African Journal of Economic and Management Sciences - Importance of external environmental labour-related risk factors for financial investment decision-making
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 views of the participating investment practitioners (who are active in the long-term insurance industry) regarding these aspects are analysed against the background of relevant literature. 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.
