Enterprises Department

All across the world people are in search of jobs. Jobs so they can raise their families and send their children to school. Jobs that provide access to social protection for them and their families. And, jobs in which they are respected, can organize and have a voice. What they want is decent work.

Enterprises play a key role in creating productive and decent work that helps meet the economic and social aspirations of people and their communities. Whether small, medium or large, enterprises – including cooperatives – they are a major source of growth and employment in all countries. Enterprises and the entrepreneurs who run them play a crucial role in creating jobs and reducing poverty.
 

The ILO has a mandate, recognized in the 2008 Declaration, to promote sustainable enterprises as an integral part of the Decent Work Agenda.”

Guy Ryder, Director-General
