Webinar: Market systems and job quality
- 12 Dec 2017
- Online Webinar
How can the market systems approach be used to improve working conditions and job quality?
More jobs and higher wages are tangible, important and objective goals. But quality is important too. Low quality jobs have considerable impacts on workers, and keep poor families trapped in perilous living and working conditions. At their worst, they can limit a family’s ability to survive and inflict severe consequences on a worker’s health.
The ILO Lab, together with Marketshare Associates, recently mapped evidence from the field to learn what’s been done, what’s been effective and how projects and donors can better address job quality in the future. Their report 'Market systems and job quality' draws on the practical lessons and experiences from 18 projects to help guide practitioners and donors on a path toward more effectively tackling job quality in market systems programming.
Steve Hartrich of the ILO will moderate the discussion exploring the findings of this report, alongside Raksha Vasudevan and Ben Fowler, the report's authors. Sebastien Moineau of BIF Myanmar will present a practitioner's perspective on measuring job quality in the Myanmar garment industry.
