Better Work is
a unique partnership program between the International Labour Organization
(ILO) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC). Launched in February
2007, it aims to improve compliance with labour standards and competitiveness
in global supply chains. Better Work involves the development of both global
tools and country level projects. The focus is on developing scalable and
sustainable solutions, which build cooperation between government, employer and
worker organizations, and international buyers.
compliance with labour standards in global supply chains is an important part
of a pro-poor development strategy. Ensuring workers’ rights and entitlements are protected helps to
distribute the benefits of trade. Better Work supports enterprises in
implementing the ILO core international labour standards and national labour

law. This helps enterprises compete in global markets where many buyers demand
compliance with labour standards from their suppliers. Improved labour standard
compliance also helps enterprises be more competitive through higher
productivity and quality. These benefits help build the business case and
supplier support for improved labour standard compliance.
In 2011 the
Better Work Indonesia country program became operational with a view to making
its services available to enterprises in the garments and footwear sector of
Indonesia. It currently works with 151 enterprises.
In mid-2016,
Better Work Indonesia will establish an independently operating foundation and
the delivery of core services will be implemented by this Foundation with
quality oversight provided by Better Work staff in the ILO Jakarta office and
at the global level.
