Family-owned businesses are acknowledged today as an important part in the successes of the entire world’s economy. Family businesses are operated in every country and may be the oldest form of business organization, but only within the last decade have their irreplaceable and remarkable benefits been actually identified, researched, and documented.
Family businesses have been described as outstanding and quality business entities. The description was formulated due to their concern, pursuit, and strategic planning for the long-term survival of the business for future generations to come. They are known for their powerful commitment to the quality of service and that relationship to their own family name; as well as their humanity in the workplace due to the special bond they carry with their employees onsite and offsite.
According to the U.S. Bureau of the Census, family businesses account for more than half of the nation’s employment. Some of the more recognizable businesses still managed by family members include: Estee Lauder Inc., Gucci, Carnival Cruise Lines, Harley-Davidson, Inc., U-Haul, Ford Models, Forbes Inc., and Ford Motor Co.
Family businesses are generally known for providing closer contact with management, are less bureaucratic, have a built-in trust factor with established relationships, and provide closer hands-on training and early exposure of the next generation to the business.
Studies show that family companies with healthy business practices and strong family bonds easily outperform the competition. Family members in well-functioning family owned and operated companies have reported that nothing comes close to the depth and joy of family contact. Moreover, these are the firms that enjoy multiple generations of family succession, as well as prosperous longevity of the business.
