Decent work sums up the aspirations of people in their working lives. It involves opportunities for work that is productive and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for families, better prospects for personal development and social integration, freedom for people to express their concerns, organize and participate in the decisions that affect their lives and equality of opportunity and treatment for all women and men.
Productive employment and Decent Work are key elements to achieving a fair globalization and the reduction of poverty. The ILO has developed an agenda for the community of work. Putting the Decent Work Agenda into practice is achieved through four strategic pillars: job creation, rights at work, social protection and social dialogue, with gender equality as a crosscutting objective.
