New thematic brief: Supporting Transitions and Securing Jobs: Social Dialogue Shaping a Stronger Recovery from the Pandemic


March 2022

While global economic growth has rebounded since the 2020 recession, there is a risk of partial and incomplete recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. To strengthen the economic recovery, it is crucial to have well-functioning labour markets that can meet the overall increase in aggregate demand and the possible changes in its composition with an available and qualified workforce.

This policy brief documents how bi- and tripartite social dialogue at different levels, including collective bargaining, is used to shape and implement measures that support an employment-intensive recovery. Such measures are aimed at assisting workers in moving from declining to expanding types of jobs in response to structural change, as well as retaining experienced workers in good job matches, so that production is able to meet the changes in aggregate demand.
