In 2009, the Social Economy companies have created employment in a context characterized by high job losses in the Spanish labour market. The aim of this paper is to analyze the employment of Social Economy, also to show that the highest quality and flexibility in the use of these entities is a key to face situations of recession. Although official data sources have some limitations, the analysis shows a higher quality of employment in the Social Economy companies based on some of the employment´s critical dimensions as gender equality, flexibility, safety, inclusion, diversity and non-discrimination.
