What Is a Business?
The term business refers to an organization or enterprising entity engaged in commercial, industrial, or professional activities. The purpose of a business is to organize some sort of economic production (of goods or services). Businesses can be for-profit entities or non-profit organizations fulfilling a charitable mission or furthering a social cause. Businesses range in scale and scope from sole proprietorships to large, international corporations.
What about educational establishments like schools, colleges and universities, are they businesses? Educators typically take issue when their schools are called businesses. Nearly all schools are non-profit, and educators take pride in working purely on behalf of the public good. But they are, in fact, businesses.
They have a board of governors, just like a business, a principle (general manager) Lunchtime assistant, teaching assistants, cleaning staff, maintenance staff and teachers (employees).
And what do all these businesses have in common? They must all comply with the health and safety legislation that each country passes.
