World Employment and Social Outlook 2023

Delivering sustainable economic growth
Jun 01, 2023 | International Labour Organisation

Key workers are essential for societies to function. This report by the International Labour Organisation calls for a revaluation of their work to reflect their social contribution, and for greater investment in key sectors. The COVID-19 pandemic has made evident the extent to which societies need key workers, and how undervalued most key jobs are, raising concerns about the sustainability of these essential activities, especially in the face of future shocks. This is one of the most important public policy lessons of the COVID-19 pandemic, as every country has an inherent interest in strengthening its resilience to major disruptions and crises.
