LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
2021: a year of recovery
“Although it was not without problems, 2021 was a year of recovery and a good year in general.br> In addition to recovery of sales, the levels of employment were maintained and turnover was good”.
The year ended with a positive balance. In addition to recovery of sales, the levels of employment were maintained and turnover was good.
Another notable aspect of 2021 was inter-cooperation, which increased significantly over the year and continues to yield returns.
These efforts must continue in both the short and long term, in order to maintain and improve business competitiveness and defend positions in view of the current economic and geopolitical context.
With people and values
“It is easier to build a better future for our planet with the driving force of people behind us, with cooperation and with values supporting the development we aspire to”.
At the MONDRAGON cooperatives, three key ideas prevail – people, cooperation and values. These are the hallmarks of their business approach, and in addition to providing the project with a human dimension – Humanity at work – they also help create more cohesive societies with less inequality and competitive enterprises.
2021 was a year when the value of people within the organisations and the cooperative model itself were both strengthened, as the people forming part of this project have shown that we know how to build more competitive enterprises, in a more cooperative way.
