Equality at work

Equality at work: Philippines

Achieving equality in the workplace is attracting attention in the Philippines and elsewhere in the drive to respect the fundamental rights of workers and boost productivity.

The paper is based on the premise that the workplace - whether factory, office, farm, plantation or household - can be a strategic entry point for fighting discrimination. Everyone gains from eliminating discrimination at work: individuals, enterprises and society at large. Fairness and justice in the workplace boost the self-esteem and morale of male and female workers and their productivity.
