The platform will serve as a meeting point for all those people who feel linked professionally or personally to the three provinces and who, for different reasons, have been developing their professional careers outside these areas.

Cuenca, Soria and Teruel, September 23, 2021. The CEOE-CEPYME Cuenca, FOES and CEOE-CEPYME Teruel are in the initial phase of developing a web platform to identify and geographically locate professionals from all fields and sectors , who feel linked to the three provinces.

The active population of the three provinces as a whole, in 2018, represented only 0.9% of the total of the national group. In the year 2020, this percentage drops to 0.87% of the total Spanish active population, when on the contrary the active population of the national group in that period has increased. The decrease in the data on the active population of these provinces is not the only element of concern, in fact, although Cuenca, Soria and Teruel are characterized by a high level of education compared to the national set, young people tend to be forced to study and work outside these territories. The consequent loss of human capital translates in turn into a loss of talent, even more so when the desired return rarely occurs.

With these data, the CEOEs have decided to promote the creation of this new tool: “SSPA Network Platform for business talent”, for which they have the collaboration of the Provincial Councils of Cuenca, Soria and Teruel.

Contracting for the design and development of the platform is open to companies associated with the three business associations that carry out their activity in the field of computer programming and web design. The award of the service, which will be carried out in the coming weeks, will allow the platform to be active before the end of this year.

The aspiration of the business organizations is that, thanks to this tool, it further strengthens the link between all those people related to the three provinces who reside and carry out their professional activity abroad, effectively favors the return of talent to the companies of the three territories and serve as a bridge to attract investment to the three provinces.
