The problem
Productive, safe employment improves lives and drives economic growth, but millions lack the opportunity or means to find such employment. Informal employment is pervasive around the globe, often with poor safety conditions and no provision for healthcare. Young people are particularly affected, with one fifth of the world's population not in education, employment or training. Corporations play a central role in creating decent work opportunities, including through the absolute number of jobs created, how well they foster a safe workplace for all employees, by paying a fair wage to all employees, and engaging with supply chain partners on ensuring safe and fair workplace practices
