Empowering Individuals for the Future of Work
The G7 members agreed on the importance of ensuring decent working conditions for platform workers, regardless of their status. They will encourage the sharing of national experiences and exploring of possible international responses consistent with fundamental principles and rights at work.
In the face of digital transformations, they also undertook to develop the sharing of experiences to invest significantly in skills and lifelong learning, in order to enable young people and those already in employment to adapt to the new and evolving requirements of the labour market, especially in the digital field.
Ensuring Gender Equality in the World of Work
The G7 members are committed to continuing the efforts made in their countries and to promoting further actions to at last close the gender pay gap, enable a better work-life balance, foster the inclusion of women in the labour market and put an end to violence and harassment in the world of work.
“Through our commitments, we have today laid the foundations for enhanced cooperation to combat social inequalities in globalization [...]. The involvement of all stakeholders will have to continue throughout the year and beyond, in order to build a more sustainable and inclusive future of work.”
Muriel Pénicaud, Minister of Labour
