Young Associate 2020-22 – The Future of Work [ELS], Paris, France 148 views

The OECD is a global economic forum working with 36 Member countries and more than 100 emerging and developing economies to make better policies for better lives. Our mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The Organisation provides a unique forum in which governments work together to share experiences on what drives economic, social and environmental change, seeking solutions to common problems.

The Directorate of Employment, Labour and Social Affairs (ELS) at the OECD provides advice to OECD governments on how to build more resilient and inclusive labour markets across a range of key policy areas such as active labour market policies, industrial relations, employment protection, minimum wages and vocational training and adult learning. This includes country-specific analyses and tailored policy recommendations to help governments create more and better jobs. Within ELS, The Future of Work team analyses how labour markets are changing in the face of a number of megatrends, including digitalisation, globalisation, environmental challenges and population ageing, and how policies and institutions may need to adapt to promote job quantity, quality and inclusiveness.
