About us

Work in Progress is the blog of the International Labour Organization (ILO) where experts share insights about the world of work and the state of the global economy.

The ILO aims to promote rights at work, encourage decent job opportunities for all, enhance social protection & strengthen dialogue on work-related issues.

Founded in 1919, the International Labour Organization is a United Nations specialized agency headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. It is the only ‘tripartite’ organization in the UN family that brings together representatives of governments, employers and workers to jointly shape policies and programmes promoting Decent Work for all. This unique arrangement gives the ILO an edge in incorporating ‘real world’ knowledge about employment and work.

The “Work in Progress” blog provides a forum for ILO experts to debate the latest issues on the world of work. Their views do not necessarily reflect the decisions of the International Labour Organization. For official ILO press releases and statements, please visit the ILO Newsroom.
