Twenty-four multinationals ans Spanish leading companies support the â€”an initiative aimed at finding innovative solutions for employersâ€™ labor concerns. It aims to open dialog with companiesâ€™ senior managers, followed by dialog with all relevant economic and social agents to finally propose worthwhile solutions to the government.
At the instituteâ€™s presentation held yesterday at the headquarters of Cuatrecasas, Gonçalves Pereira in Madrid, Mr. Emilio Cuatrecasas said: â€œWe expect proposals to be made on a daily basis to apply them in the medium and long term.â€ Also present at the presentation were Mr. Salvador del Rey, the instituteâ€™s president and a professor of labor law, and the instituteâ€™s director, Mr. Fernando Moreno, who previously managed the Labor and Social Affairs Department of the Spanish Confederation of Employersâ€™ Organizations (CEOE).
Mr. del Rey stated that the problem with Spainâ€™s current labor situation is that â€œwe were not capable of predicting what was on the horizonâ€; 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 â€œwhich will always be crucial to the countryâ€™s economic and social evolution.â€
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 todayâ€™s problems, and the importance of triggering public debate involving and considering trade unions and agents.
