Growth prospects are therefore very promising, according to a national study by Randstad Research, according to which 75% of automotive companies expect the industry to generate employment this year.
The study, presented Tuesday in Zaragoza, shows that the positive expectations have value both the recovery of activity in Spain, where vehicle production had fallen in recent years, and the external impulse of companies that not only work For factories located in our country, but outside it.
Valentín Bote, director of Randstad Research, a research service of the Randstad group in Spain, said that automotive is a sector whose growth figures exceed those of other sectors, but warned about problems arising from the expansion in companies, among which Highlighted the difficulty of maintaining talented workers in organizations, problems of rotation in the workforce and absenteeism.
David Romeral, director of the Automotive Cluster in Aragon (Caar), who accompanied Bote in the presentation, corroborated that the national data are extrapolable to the autonomous community and that the problems arising from growth are the same. Romeral recalled that the Aragon auxiliary industry created a thousand jobs last year and by 2017 the generation of new jobs is expected to be between 700 and 800.
