Mr. del Rey stated that the problem with Spain’s current labor situation is that “we were not capable of predicting what was on the horizon”; that the institute has been established precisely with the aim of trying to get ahead of change and propose strategies to improve the management of human capital “which will always be crucial to the country’s economic and social evolution.”

Mr. Moreno explained the thinking behind the institute, particularly its unique practical facet in aiming to find real solutions to real problems. He also mentioned how market globalization clearly defines our approaches to today’s problems, and the importance of triggering public debate involving and considering trade unions and agents.
