Description

Description

One of the key roles of employers' organizations (EOs) is to take part in bipartite and tripartite dialogue representing the interests of their members. Social protection is one of the fields in which social and national dialogues are taking place, engaging EOs, workers organizations, and sometimes other representatives of the civil society with governments. Social protection systems may represent an important part of state expenditure and labour cost. However, if they are well-designed and implemented, social protection systems can powerfully shape countries' social contract, enhance human capital and productivity, eradicate poverty, reduce inequalities and contribute to building social peace. Therefore social protection systems are instrumental for the installation of a business conducive environment. This course offers a tailor-made training on social protection for employers' organizations' staff and board members. It builds on the work already undertaken by the Social Protection Department of the ILO and ITCILO, but will focus more directly on aspects of social protection which relate to business (including concerns over the cost and financing of social protection systems) with the aim of helping employers' organizations in being better equipped to co-shape this crucial component of national policy.
