When it comes to family businesses, there are a whole host of issues to be considered. Often the focus is on company succession or the challenges within the family itself. But there is one important component that contributes significantly to the success of a company that is often overlooked: the most valuable people – the employees!
The theme of this year's annual Family Business Day forum was “My most valuable people – the role of employees in family businesses going forward”. On 27 and 28 June 2019, over 150 German-speaking family entrepreneurs met at Banque de Luxembourg to exchange ideas and discuss issues.
More than 16 family entrepreneurs and experts shared their visions and experiences regarding the role of employees within the company. The event closed with discussions on family and how external support can facilitate structural changes within the family.
