The unprecedented, tumultuous events of the past year have been an extraordinary test of resilience for almost all businesses, including family businesses.
What we learnt is that family businesses with resilience as part of their DNA have risen to meet the challenge. As in any crisis, family owners stood united, defined their commitment to their business and spoke with one voice. Family businesses relied on strong fundamentals - commitment to values, long-term thinking, sensible leverage - to send a strong message to employees, business partners and the public.
Family businesses that demonstrate a commitment to sustainability with correct actions can only strengthen the trust and goodwill which give them the licence to operate.
