Business administration ensures that the operational needs of a business can be met. Currently, there is a need for more workers to carry out tasks within businesses to ensure the smooth running of daily activities. Managers need support, so these roles are considered vital to keep organisational cogs working. As ageing 'baby boomers' are approaching retirement and beginning to reduce their hours or leave altogether, for some organisations, this means a large amount of capability and experience will leave their roles over a relatively short period of time with current UK administration replacement demand running at 600,000 people over the next five years.
