Employers' organizations taking the lead on gender equality : case studies from 10 countries by International Labour Office( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gender equality is an important issue for society, and no one should be in any doubt that very many employers worldwide have been instrumental in attaining greater levels of equality between women and men at work. The case studies presented in this publication provide insights into the efforts that are being made in this respect by employers and their organizations in countries across the world. The gender equality issues that employers' organizations seek to address evidently vary considerably from country to country. There is, however, a common thread which emerges from analysis of the case studies - namely that, when employers act together through their representative organizations, they can influence reform in a way that is beneficial both to themselves and to society as a whole, rather than having it imposed upon them. The ten case studies in the publication are from across the world: Croatia, Jamaica, Kenya, Malaysia, New Zealand, Norway, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, the Syrian Arab Republic and Yemen. They therefore cover countries at different levels of development, from different regions and cultures, and countries in which the situation of women varies considerably."--Publisher
La mujer en la gestión empresarial : cobrando impulso : versión resumida del Informe Mundial( )

2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Las mujeres han hecho muchos avances en el acceso a la educación, y como resultado ha aumentado el acceso al empleo. Hoy un tercio de las empresas en el mundo están conducidas por mujeres, y también cada vez más se reconoce su capacidad gestión. Crecientemente se comprueba también que lograr un equilibrio de género y diversidad en los equipos de gestión en todos los niveles de la jerarquía produce resultados positivos de negocios. Sin embargo, los viejos estereotipos de género todavía ensombrecen la contribución de las mujeres a los negocios. Primera en la lista de los estereotipos, en todos los contextos sociales y culturales, está su capacidad para conciliar las responsabilidades laborales y familiares. Las mujeres propietarias de empresas se concentran principalmente en las pequeñas y microempresas. Todavía menos del 5 por ciento de los directores ejecutivos de las mayores corporaciones globales son mujeres. Y cuanto más alta es la escala corporativa y más grande es la organización, menos mujeres hay. El "techo de cristal" sigue intacto. Las mujeres están teniendo éxito como administradoras de alto nivel, de recursos humanos y como gerentes de relaciones públicas. Pero "las paredes de cristal" les impiden tomar posiciones estratégicas de gestión que conduzcan al estadio superior. Las empresas pierden así la contribución que las mujeres pueden significar para sus beneficios. La mujer en la gestión empresarial: cobrando impulso reúne todos los datos disponibles, incluidas las estadísticas de la OIT, para proporcionar una imagen global y actualizada de las mujeres en los puestos de dirección en el mundo empresarial. En el informe se destacan no solo los obstáculos que todavía enfrentan las mujeres, sino también las ventajas de negocios de la diversidad de género, ofreciendo recomendaciones sobre el camino a seguir

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Southeast Asia is home to more than 630 million people and is a hub for several manufacturing sectors, including textiles, vehicles and hard disk drives. According to this study, more than half of workers in five Southeast Asian countries are at high risk of losing their jobs to automation in the next two decades, with those in the garments industry particularly vulnerable. About 137 million workers or 56 per cent of the salaried workforce from Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, fall under the high-risk category, the study showed. Key findings: i) ASEAN enterprises' performance, technology and skills requirements; ii) ASEAN students' aspirations and expectations from work; iii) Recruitment and job-search activities in ASEAN; iv) Working modalities and working culture in ASEAN."--Summary
The future of jobs at risk of automation by Jae-Hee Chang( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ILO Bureau for Employers' Activities (ACT/EMP), together with the ILO Regional Office in Asia and the Pacific (RO - Asia and the Pacific), extensively researched this subject in 2015 and 2016. Drawing from numerous interviews and case studies, the team examined current technological trends in the ASEAN region and how they impact enterprises and workers within five major sectors: automotive and auto parts; electrical and electronic parts; business process outsourcing; textile, clothing and footwear; and retail. Alongside these in-depth sectoral studies, the ILO gathered 4,076 survey responses from ASEAN enterprises in the manufacturing and service industries. Additionally, survey responses from 2,747 university and technical vocational education and training students were also collected, providing insights on the career aspirations and expectations of the next generation of workers."--Preface
ASEAN in transformation : how technology is changing jobs and enterprises by Jae-Hee Chang( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The report presents a detailed analysis of how technology is transforming five key labour-intensive and economically prominent sectors in ASEAN: the automotive and auto parts; electrical and electronics; textiles, clothing and footwear; business process outsourcing; and retail sectors. It also highlights findings from extensive enterprise and student surveys as well as stakeholder interviews conducted in ASEAN and beyond. It is clear that technologies - both current and forthcoming - will increase productivity, render some occupations obsolete and create new ones. The real question lies in whether ASEAN can take advantage of the benefits technology offers and if it can also adequately prepare its workforce."--Extracted from ILO website
