A growing body of studies shows that social protection supports companies’ competitiveness, and results in lower absenteeism, greater worker productivity and reduced turnover. Furthermore, it is a driver of growth and development: it boosts aggregate demand for goods and services by increasing incomes, which can create new business opportunities for private-sector enterprises; and it is a driver of social and political stability, which are important factors that impact firms’ success and economic development at large.
