Ombudsman celebrates National Family Business Day
The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman today celebrates Australian family businesses and their contribution to the economy.
Ombudsman Kate Carnell said the family enterprise sector accounts for two in three businesses.
“The role family businesses play is an important one, as they employ more than 50% of the Australian workforce,” she said.
“With up to 70% of businesses being family enterprises, it’s crucial to recognise and celebrate the people who have made this sector flourish and grow.
“I urge people to shop local today and show your support for the family businesses in your community.”
