Family-owned businesses play a leading role in the Polish economy, the European Union as well as in other economies worldwide. According to estimates, such firms constitute 60% of all active enterprises within the European Union. This group of entities is mostly made up of small and medium-sized enterprises.However, few still remember that family-owned businesses also include companies such as Ikea, BMW, Carrefour, Cargil as well as Mokate and Fakro on the Polish side.
Family-owned firms demonstrate natural commitment to values, which in modern businesses are built by a host of managers and consultants. Family relationships can be a source of ethical activity, sensitivity to another person’s needs, teamworking skills, thought leadership and, above all, a sense of community and loyalty.
