Executive Summary
• Employers and human resources managers would welcome the creation of a clear, widely accepted and easily measurable definition of
‘decent work’
• Employers often believe that they already offer ‘decent work’, without necessarily having a clear understanding of what ‘decent work’
• Many employers are concerned with improving performance and want to provide attractive places to work
• It is important to identify and praise role model employers who provide ‘decent work’ – a ‘decent work employer badge’ could be a further
workplace quality characteristic
• Employers view responsibility for creating ‘decent work’ as shared with government and other key stakeholders
