Enrique Sanchez, the president of Adecco, the largest temporary employment agency operating in Spain, believes that the latest labour reforms are a good thing although he thinks they lack a legal aspect that would allow for better management of temporary workers.
Mr Sanchez has been president of Adecco since 2005 and in an interview with CincoDias he commented on the Spanish labour reforms that have caused an uproar in the country this month.
He said that the change that has come for temporary employment induced by these reforms has been minor, although it had given “explicit recognition” to the staffing industry in Spain. He also said that the reforms are “good” but pointed out that the Government still needed to improve the management of temporary workers, who are “chained” to different companies.
He also urged that temporary staff be given more training, something that will in the long run make them more employable. He said that "We must understand that the way one worked 30 years ago is no longer useful, [it is not possible to have] the same job for life.”
The Spanish labour reforms have implemented various changes, making the labour market more flexible. Changes have been made regarding employment terminations, redundancies and collective dismissals.
