Today is ... National Family Business Day
Every September, Australia celebrates National Family Business Day – a day designed to recognise the invaluable contribution family businesses make to the Australian economy, community and culture.
National Family Business Day is today Friday, 17 September 2021.
Family businesses are the backbone of Australia, representing approximately 70 percent of all Australian businesses and employing approximately 50 percent of the Australian workforce.
Many of Australia’s largest and most loved companies are family businesses including Brown Brothers, Coopers Brewery, Bickfords Australia, Haighs Chocolates, Beerenberg, Spring Gully Foods, Robern Menz and more.
All family businesses have one collective thing in common. They all have a family business story to tell. Whether they’re a multi-generation business, a dynamic husband and wife duo or siblings – each of their businesses are interwoven with their family values and ethos.
Family businesses aren’t just in business for profits. With your support, they are building a legacy and future for their families for generations to come.
National Family Business Day is a chance to celebrate family business in all its forms.
