What can governments do to create jobs and boost productivity? Here’s our take:

The ILO aims to promote rights at work, encourage decent job opportunities for all, enhance social protection & strengthen dialogue on work-related issues.

Founded in 1919, the International Labour Organization is a United Nations specialized agency headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. It is the only ‘tripartite’ organization in the UN family that brings together representatives of governments, employers and workers to jointly shape policies and programmes promoting Decent Work for all. This unique arrangement gives the ILO an edge in incorporating ‘real world’ knowledge about employment and work.
