During the last ten days we have been waking up with news regarding with Curscah affair, every of them more repulsive and negligible than the previous one.
Last month, however, ASIMA make the presentation of the book “Empresarios con Valor”, in which are presented the personal experiences of 27 businessmen of Son Castelló and Can Valero Industrial Parks. The `old business school’ of Mallorca explains their particular view of the figure of the businessman.
In all these testimonies one can observe some common values: effort, hard work, fight, commitment, responsability and a lot of labour time. Responsability, is the word tha is mentioned more times in all the book.
Responsability for the well done work, for the wellness of the workers and their families, for getting on improving, for the society where they live, for their providers. In conclusion, with what later has been called, pompously , Corporate Social Responsability.
This is the one and only recipe to get ahead the small and medium size businesses: well done, responsible and hard work. The other ways -the extortion, bad practices, abuse of power- are determinated to fail, before or later in the time.
So, please take note the current entrepreneurs. We often have a lot to learn from the strategies and values that were used by the ‘old businessmen’.
