Among the activities that will be organized are the group workshops for simulating job interviews through role-playing games; a workshop on self-knowledge, video resume advice, as well as another based on the Japanese ikigai method in which participants will identify four keys to their identity to know their vocation. There will also be various proposals to bring trades and professions closer to various sectors, such as Techdigital, industry or logistics.

On the other hand, the show will also emphasize the employment of vulnerable people and will be the scene of the presentation of a study on the situation of women in the labor market. Experiences of incorporation into the labor market of people with functional diversity or initiatives that promote the employment of the trans group will also be shared.

The Sí i Millor fair organized by the FECETC (Federation of Special Work Centers of Catalonia) will offer direct contact with companies interested in incorporating people with neurodiversity, interviews between companies and conferences to facilitate the employment of this group.

The Saló de l'Ocupació is organized by Fira de Barcelona with the support of Barcelona City Council, through Barcelona Activa.
