International Labour Organization Manila Office Taps TalkShop Anew



TalkShop works anew with the International Labour Organization, the only tripartite U.N. agency. Represented locally by the ILO Country Office for the Philippines (ILO Manila), this specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) continues to promote social justice and internationally-recognized human and labour rights.

The International Labour Organization (ILO) was established in 1919 as part of the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I. It is the United Nations agency where governments, employers, and workers have, through a tripartite structure, work as one voice in promoting decent work for all.

To this day, ILO brings together other UN agencies and representatives of the 187-member states to work in shaping policies and programs that improve human conditions and life at work.

As the ILO Country Office for the Philippines conducts its mid-year Planning and Retreat, it partners with TalkShop to facilitate the 3-day program that aims to promote and achieve ILO Manila’s goal to deliver as one, by better understanding operational strategies and reinforcing field office links using the organization’s policy frameworks.
