Official Launch of the Centenary of the International Labour Organisation


2019 02 07


On 22 January, 2019 International Labour Organisation (ILO) has launched the report by the ILO Global Commission on the Future of Work marking the official start of the ILO100 celebrations.

It is the culmination of a process that began in 2015 with the Director-General’s Report on the Future of Work Centenary Initiative to the International Labour Conference, followed by a series of national dialogues in various ILO member States, including Lithuania.

The Global Commission was set up to undertake an in-depth examination of the future of work and make recommendations on how to achieve social justice in the 21st century. Its landmark report outlines the steps needed to achieve a future of work that provides decent and sustainable work opportunities for all. 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: Increase investment in people’s capabilities, Increase investment in the institutions of work and Increase investment in decent and sustainable work. More information is available on the ILO webpage.

To mark the ILO Centenary and in the context of the Future of Work Initiative the Ministry of Social Security and Labour of the Republic of Lithuania organises the high-level international conference “Towards Digitalised World of Work: What Future Works for All?” on 25-26 April 2019 in Vilnius.
