The ASCEF and the IEF reaffirm their commitment to employment, sustainability and welfare
The ASCEF has reaffirmed its commitment to employment, sustainability and the well-being of society in the face of the COVID-19 crisis. The entity established in 1998, which is linked to the Family Business Institute (IEF) and comprises over 100 companies representing the Catalan business community, highlights in an official video the role played by family businesses during the pandemic. Companies have maintained activity whenever possible and applied the necessary safety measures to protect workers; they have placed their productive capacity at the disposal of the government and used their international networks and logistical capacity to transport medical materials. Family businesses have also made altruistic donations in an attempt to alleviate some of the hardships arising from the crisis.
Family businesses in Spain that form part of the different territories linked to the IEF have also expressed their willingness to reinvent themselves and adapt to the new normal. The aim is to maintain and boost employment and continue to help improve the general situation.
