WeaTemps is committed to generating change in the way people work. We
have aligned our goals with the UN Sustainable Development Goals which are a
call for action by all countries – poor, rich and middle-income – to promote
prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty
must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address
a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job
opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.
More important than ever, the goals provide a critical framework for COVID-19
There are 17 key aims for achievement. Here we talk about Goal 8 – Decent
Work and Economic Growth. Sustained and inclusive economic growth can drive
progress, create decent jobs for all and improve living standards.
Goal 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth
What does “decent work” mean?
Decent work means opportunities for everyone to get work that is productive
and delivers a fair income, security in the workplace and social protection for
families, better prospects for personal development and social integration. A
continued lack of decent work opportunities, insufficient investments, and
under-consumption lead to an erosion of the basic social contract underlying
democratic societies: that all must share in progress.
