Award for the Promotion of Youth Employment in Madrid, Spain

Posted: Tuesday 1 May 18, 2.12pm GMT

On the 21st of March, 2018 The Mahou San Miguel Foundation and the Club of Excellence in Sustainability presented the Juvenile Impulse Award in Madrid.

Their Majesties the King and Queen of Spain presided over the Honor Committee this year for the awards. The jury takes into account both the impact of the projects and the value they bring in the creation of stable and quality employment, especially when they are aimed at groups of young people in vulnerable situations. In additions, winning initiatives take into account the concept of sustainability in its triple aspect: economic, environmental and social.

The awards aim to raise awareness, for both business and society in general, about the need to promote this type of practices to improve employability, competitiveness and economic and social development. Award categories included; The Large Company Award, SME Award, Third Sector Small Social Entity Award, and Third Sector Large Social Entity Award.

Alfredo Mahou, President of the Mahou San Miguel Foundation, highlighted the high quality of the initiatives presented and the ability to generate innovative projects from both small and large corporations, saying “innovation is not only a matter of resources but a matter of will. After these two editions of the award we can say that there are big projects thanks to the efforts of companies and social entities to achieve a better world. For this reason, from the Mahou San Miguel Foundation we want to recognize all those who contribute innovative but real and effective ideas in favor of those who have it the most difficult .”

In addition, the President of the Club of Excellence in Sustainability, Ramón Paredes, said “we support the initiatives of large companies, SMEs and third sector organizations to carry out a responsible management of human resources, which includes a firm commitment to the incorporation of young people in the labor market with offers of quality employment, with a formative character and that take into account the different groups at risk of exclusion. The consolidation of these awards with more than one hundred and twenty candidates in their two editions reaffirms our commitment.”
