Part I: Getting to work on SDG 8

In this four-part series on SDG eight, we will demonstrate how we are engaging with companies on four key questions on the provision of decent work. In this first instalment, we tackle the question of who companies are employing.

Job creation and access to employment underpin many of the SDG targets, lifting people out of poverty and bringing previously underrepresented groups into the workforce.

Today, the challenges presented by increasingly tight labour markets present opportunities to rethink hiring practices for mutual benefit.
