WEC has announced the publication of a new Manifesto “No Future of Work without social innovation”.
The Manifesto brings together the headline messages we will take forward to policymakers, governments and educators to build an open, inclusive and sustainable labour market that creates decent work.
It was unveiled by Annemarie Muntz, President of the World Employment Confederation, during the 50th World Employment Conference that took place in Paris last week.

In the last decade labour markets have undergone significant change and the
employment industry is convinced this trend will continue to accelerate in the coming years. This Manifesto illustrates the commitment of the World Employment Confederation and its members and demonstrates the leadership role they will take in building futureproof labour markets.

As the authoritative professional global body for the employment industry, the World Employment Confederation calls upon policymakers and relevant stakeholders to work in partnership to build open, inclusive and sustainable labour markets that enable everyone - individuals, businesses and society at large.

In order to cope with the increasing volatility in labour markets, it is essential to promote and implement social innovation as well as introduce new security schemes. To tackle challenges linked to the increasing diversity of forms of work, the following solutions should be considered: portable social benefits and rights, new types of collective representation and access to lifelong learning. With regard to the business sector, embracing social innovation is essential if organisations hope to secure skilled and
talented workers and remain competitive and agile.

For any country, having an efficient labour market is a prerequisite for economic growth and competitiveness. Countries with forward-thinking labour policies and effective labour markets will be more resilient and more likely to prosper. As such, the biodiversity of labour markets must be nurtured and protected in order to secure an open, inclusive, sustainable and enabling working environment.
