At the end of 2011, the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors of Foment del Treball approved a new organizational structure, the fundamental objective of which is to strengthen the activity of the Catalan union as a representative of companies before the administrations and regulators. This new structure has three new directions, Technical, Training and Services, and provides the organization with more agility and speed, while it highlights the potential of the human capital of the organization.
Foment del Treball proposes this new organizational structure as a first step to a new context of social and economic change.
