ILO Talks: How COVID-19 has accelerated the future of work

7 December 2020,
Virtual event

COVID-19 has had a devastating human impact. Necessary lock-down measures have led to massive economic and labour market losses, with young people, women and the informal economy hit hardest. Looking ahead, there will be a slow, difficult and uncertain recovery in the years to come. The crisis has already transformed the way in which billions of people experience work around the world.

In industrialized economies it has sped up digitization and remote work, with some workers now on indefinite teleworking arrangements and many working online.

However, those without the necessary skills and opportunities to make the digital transition are at risk of being left behind. In less developed countries the crisis has deeply affected informal workers, disrupted supply chains, decimated tourism and put more people at risk of extreme poverty.

High-level discussants will inject the global world of work perspective and propose measures that will help enterprises and societies build a better future of work from the crisis.

The discussion will be held in English and interpreted in French, Spanish and sign language.
