A Universal Labour Guarantee, social protection from birth to old age and an entitlement to lifelong learning are among ten recommendations made in a landmark report by the International Labour Organization’s Global Commission on the Future of Work.

The Global Commission on the Future of Work has undertaken an in-depth examination of the future of work. Its landmark report outlines the steps needed to achieve a future of work that provides decent and sustainable work opportunities for all.

A human-centred agenda

The report calls for a human-centred agenda for the future of work that strengthens the social contract by placing people and the work they do at the centre of economic and social policy and business practice.

This agenda consists of three pillars of action, which in combination would drive growth, equity and sustainability for present and future generations:

  1. Increase investment in people’s capabilities
  2. Increase investment in the institutions of work
  3. Increase investment in decent and sustainable work
