​1.        Background

ew forces are transforming the world of work. The transitions involved call for decisive action. Countless opportunities lie ahead to improve the quality of working lives, expand choice, close the gender gap, reverse the damages wreaked by global inequality, and much more. Yet none of this will happen by itself. Without decisive action we will be heading into a world that widens existing inequalities and uncertainties. We need to seize the opportunities presented by transformative changes such as technological advances, demographic changes and a move towards a low-carbon economy to create a brighter future and deliver economic security, equal opportunity and social justice – and ultimately reinforce the fabric of our societies.

The ILO report by the Global Commission on the Future of Work examines how to achieve a better future of work for all at a time of unprecedented change and exceptional challenges in the world of work. Titled ‘Work for a Brighter Future’, the report proposes 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: Increasing investment in people’s capabilities; Increasing investment in the institutions of work; and Increasing investment in decent and sustainable work.​
