Social protection, and more specifically its global extension through national social protection floors, is on the agenda of major international summits, such as the G20, the International Labour Conference 2012, Rio+20 and post-MDGs discussions, among others. This one hour webinar will shed light on how multinational enterprises (MNEs) can contribute to this global challenge as part of their commitment to socio economic development, addressing social challenges, and the potential benefits for employers, workers and society. Drawing on concrete examples from corporate policies and practices, the webinar -conducted by experts of the ILO Social Protection Department with the participation of a Danone representative- will explore the drivers, corporate strategies and concrete results of MNEs providing a minimum level of social protection for all their employees worldwide. The webinar will draw on the conclusions of the recent publication (available in French, English forthcoming): “The extension of social security and the social responsibility of multinational enterprises: An exploratory study”.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday 14 May at 3:30 PM (Geneva time), 9:30 AM (New York time), Registration is required to participate.
