The ILO Global Dialogue “The Future of Work We Want” brought together leading economists, academics and representatives of governments and the social partners (employers’ and workers’ organizations) to discuss the profound changes sweeping the world of work. More than 700 participants attended the event in Geneva on April 6-7 with many thousands joining and participating via the internet and social media.
Lead by Denis Pennel (Managing Director at the World Employment Confederation), a large delegation of representatives from the World Employment Confederation attended the event. The delegation included Even Hagelien (NHO/Norway), Boris Eicher (SwissStaffing/Switzerland), Vivi Krönström (Eprel/Estonia), Fernando Calvet (Fenaserhtt/Brazil), Menno Bart (The Adecco Group) and Jan Denys (Randstad Belgium).
The World Employment Confederation seized the opportunity to present the content of its White Paper on the Future of Work to several speakers, and networked with several high-level participants including Ambassador Nicolas Niemtchinow, Assistant Director General and Special Adviser to the ILO Director General. Members of the World Employment Confederation stressed the need to take into consideration the heterogeneity of the new world of work, and stressed the need for a variety of work relationships in order to reflect the diversity of expectations both from workers and companies.
