With just a few days to go to the end of the year that everyone seems to want to end, I would like to share some thoughts with you:
It is always said that you remember where you were when a major event happened, example, an earthquake, the twin towers on 9/11 2001, etc. This case that was and is an event that we follow in the midst of … without a doubt will always be in our minds, only that we will not remember a single place, we will remember several places, moments and people with whom we lived this peculiar year.
Another reflection is that this year accelerated things to a greater or lesser extent, but without a doubt it accelerated them. In some cases, businesses that perhaps had an assured life of 5-10 years, 2020 was their year of termination.
In the particular case of our industry, electronic manufacturing, I consider that it accelerated its valuation process since it went from being an industry in which the pejorative term of “production/manufacture” was even used, it became valued as an essential industry. Even thanks to that distinction, the entire supply chain did not stop, since in the first place we had projects that would help the medical industry and in the second place, technology allowed us to do so, given remote work, digital platforms, among other things.
Another thing that 2020 made us aware of, is the human quality that we have as a work team, always being there for each other, learning the oldest from the youngest about the use of digital platforms and the youngest from the oldest that crises happen, and that with work and dedication they are overcome.
Finally I think that it is already a lot of talking and those who know me already know how I am… we realize in 2020 that we are experiencing the worst crisis in 100 years and that just those of us who were born in the 70s or 80s happen to be generations that have a double commitment, the commitment with those who are about to retire or retired to maintain a solid economy, as well as with the young people who are leaving the universities and entering the world of work, to generate opportunities for them.
If you are interested in the articles and books of which I develop these reflections, leave us a comment and your email and we will gladly send it to you.
