|Abstract: ||Structured Abstract
Purpose: this article systemizes the main historical milestones which led to the current
concept of decent work and presents some implications for business.
Approach: after presenting the scenario which gives a special meaning and importance
to decent work, the historical landmarks are systematized until the definition of the
Decent Work Agenda.
Findings: Decent work is a concept that has evolved since the ILO Foundation in 1919
and had several important steps throughout its development: Philadelphia Declaration in
1944, ILO constitution update in 1946, Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948,
Human Development Report, first edition in 1990, World Summit for Social
Development in 1995, ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work
in 1998, World Economic Forum in 1999, Global Compact in 2000, United Nations
Millennium Declaration in 2000, ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair
Globalization in 2008, Global Jobs Compact in 2009, and inclusion in the 2030 Agenda
for Sustainable Development. Throughout this development we can witness the
refinement and operationalization of the concept, its institutionalization and its spread at
political level, at least as an intention.
Practical implications: the business area is a privileged forum to turn policies into
practices and some examples are provided.
Value: although decent work emerged in a very different social and economic scenario
from the present time, it is claimed to be even more topical and relevant for the
development of business and society today.|
