Social Policy, Labour & Employment

Economic changes must work alongside social changes. This means addressing social pressures effectively. This area covers education and training, the labour market, and of course equal opportunities. The wider social dialogue also comes under this umbrella. These areas are important to companies and governments the world over.

The demographics in countries are changing, so we work hard to help raise engagement in society, and reduce welfare dependency. Our policy work on the labour market issues ensures wider and deeper workforce engagement.

We work hard to bring governments and employers policy level research, from orientation in the labour market to further evaluation of policies and strategies. We also consult on development of policy on a wider level.

"Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and
favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment."
