Work, not just jobs or employment, is crucial for human progress: Of the world’s 7.3 billion people, 3.2 billion have jobs, and many others engage in unpaid care, creative and voluntary work as well as training to prepare themselves for a future working life.
The 2015 Human Development Report ‘Work for Human Development’ examines the links between work and human development in a rapidly changing world of work. Fast globalization, technological revolution, demographic changes and many other factors are creating new opportunities, but also posing risks.
The report examines how the benefits of this new world of work are not equally distributed, generating winners and losers. The report argues for a bigger idea of work beyond the jobs framework, to confront both persistent challenges such as human deprivations, inequalities, unsustainability, and gender imbalances in paid and unpaid work – as well as emerging ones – loss of jobs, skills gaps, climate change and others.
It concludes with a series of policy recommendations on how to enhance human progress through promotion of workers’ rights and broader access to social protection. The 2015 Human Development Report ‘Work for Human Development’ was launched on 12/14/15.
