The ILO Office for the United Nations welcomes you to the launch of the independent report produced by the Global Commission on the Future of Work. The Commission was set up by the ILO to address the future of work and provide recommendations and policy guidance. Co-chaired by H.E. Mr. Matamela Cyril Ramaphosa, President of South Africa, and H.E. Mr. Stefan Löfven, Prime Minister of Sweden, the Commission has analysed the impacts of new technologies and structural transformations driven by changes in demographics, globalisation and climate change.
The work of the Commission has been organised around four "centenary conversations":
• Work and society
• Decent jobs for all
• The organization of work and production
• The governance of work
While the future of work poses numerous challenges, it is possible to create a future of work that we want, where technology works for us and workers are adaptable. The report provides guidance and recognises the opportunities for policymakers and others to proactively shape an inclusive future of work.
