Last Monday, January the 25th, 2021, the second online round table was held to reactivate Baix Montseny, to give continuity to the first one that took place in November 2019.
The Baix Montseny Business Àgora is an initiative within the framework of the Strategic Plan, which wants to continue articulating a channel of dialogue and commitment with the business fabric within the framework of the local development of Baix Montseny: an opportunity to meet the demands of the business fabric and respond to the various concerns.
The round table was held with the Minister of Business and Knowledgement, Ramon Tremosa; the Secretary of Business and Competitiveness of the Generalitat de Catalunya Joaquím Ferre; the general secretary of the Sabadell Manufacturers Guild, Nuria Aymerich; the general director of Hidrocolor, Josep Moré; and Pepsico’s IT Director Southwest Europe and Turkey, Mireia Vila. The moderator was the Human Resources coach and consultant, Josep Moulines. Opening the act was the Mayor of Llinars del Vallès Martí Pujol.
The objective of Àgora Baix Montseny is to present the work done throughout 2020 and collect the demands for actions to be undertaken by 2021. It is organized by the Community of Municipalities of the Baix Montseny territory with the support of the Generalitat of Catalonia.
Topics such as the need for collaboration between companies in the territory and the different administrations, both local and regional, were discussed. Bridges must be dressed in order to overcome this new reality that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought us. This requires a great deal of generosity from all the actors involved.
Another of the topics covered in depth was the lack of qualified personnel to supply the industries of the territory. We are in the era of digitization and Industry 4.0, and without trained personnel it will not be possible to move forward. Collaboration between companies and training centres is very necessary. It is necessary to promote DUAL training, recovering the “apprentice” a little. It was also stressed that technical training must be accompanied by training with values. Companies must be ethical; therefore, from their management together with the entire human team, they must share the values.
