The world of work is in constant change. Demographic shifts, technological innovation, institutional reforms and global economic integration affect the way people work. Technological innovations have a major impact on occupations and industries, changing the ways economies in different world regions, in both developed and developing countries, work along with new division of labour that are facilitated by global economic integration.

Growing diversity

From a global perspective, we can see a growing diversity in terms of job types ranging along the whole continuum from permanent formal employment to different forms of non-standard work and informality. Increasing flexibility and diversity can also be observed with respect to working time and mobile working patterns.

Given this background, policy choices which take contextual differences into account are necessary at the global, national, regional and sectoral levels.

A new balance

Core policy areas such as education, training at different stages of life, collective bargaining and wage setting, and also the role of labour market regulation, social protection and active labour market policies need to be addressed, trying to strike a new balance between flexibility and security in order to stimulate the creation of more good jobs for all.
