The General Assembly of CEC European Managers has elected a new Executive Board for the next three years (f.l.t.r.): Maxime Legrand (President), Torkild Justesen (Secretary General), Ebba Öhlund (Treasurer) and Marco Vezzani (Dep. Secretary General).
„Managers‘ professional commitment is indispensable if we want our societies to continue thriving in increasingly uncertain times. And it is our precise intention to have their voice heard even louder in Europe, and everywhere their work makes a difference” said Maxime Legrand.

Report: Mainstreaming Gender Equality in European Leadership
To contribute to the ongoing debate on how to secure gender equality in our societies, CEC European Managers has published a report on gender in leadership that features key policy and managerial recommendations.
„When self-regulation does not bring about change at the right pace, targeted legislative measures setting quotas to ensure a minimum presence of the underrepresented gender in company boards are needed” commented Ebba Öhlund, board member of CEC.
Tackling unprecedented employment and mental health crisis
Eurofound’s new “Living, working and COVID-19“ report depicts a European mental health crisis linked to a record number of people losing their job. The alarming research is based on a large-scale survey among 190 000 participants across the EU, with similar trends observable in all Member States.
Social partners, managers and policy-makers now have to prioritize creating more fertile framework conditions for mental health and job security. As women are disproportionally hit, the gender dimension needs stronger attention.
New board elected
ULA has elected a new board, headed by Roland Angst, senior manager and manager representative at Deutsche Telekom.
„The new world of work poses various challenges to politics, business and workers. We need a better framework for protection, but just as much for flexibility for new paths“ Roland Angst said when taking office.
