The Jobs Consortium

The Jobs Consortium

The Jobs Consortium is a coalition of public and private sector leaders promoting a better future of work through enabling job creation and job transitions. The Jobs Consortium rallies behind a new vision for the future of work that:  


  • Builds on foresight about labour market trends to prepare for the future  

  • Invests in key sectors leading to good job creation  

  • Ensures smooth transitions between jobs through mapping of talent and jobs  

  • Secures high job quality and fair wages for all workers  

A Turbulent Outlook for Work and Workers

Labour markets globally are on divergent paths: low- and middle-income countries face a growing working-age population amidst high unemployment while advanced economies confront an ageing population, decreased labour force participation and tight labour markets. Globally, real wages are under pressure as inflation surges. Looking forward, continued technological disruption, the green transition, and the restructuring of value chains will lead to sustained periods of job churn. Around the world jobs are rapidly changing, while workers are renegotiating their relationship with work. 

A Future of Work that Works for Everyone

At this crucial geopolitical and geo-economic moment, good jobs are a critical pathway for managing rising inequality, building social mobility and addressing the cost-of-living crisis. Higher wage, formal, future-ready and higher quality jobs are better for companies, workers and economies alike.

Mobilizing a Job Rich Recovery

Government and business leaders in the Jobs Consortium champion a new vision for the future of work and co-create knowledge on job creation and good work. The consortium is supported by insight products, action frameworks and a collaboration platform developed by the Forum’s Centre for the New Economy and Society.

In 2022-2024 the Consortium will 1) champion the narrative on a job-rich recovery, 2) support country level public-private initiatives, and 3) accelerate business leadership on good jobs.


  1. Insight development will include The Future of Jobs Report, which tracks jobs and skills that are growing and declining in demand across major economies and industries, as well as the Jobs of Tomorrow series that identifies the job areas for highest return on investment, boosting economic activity, expanding employment opportunities and generating multiplier effects in the form of more inclusive economies and societies.

  2. Country-level public private collaboration includes the Jobs Accelerators, which support government and business in stimulating a good jobs recovery at a national level. In 2022-2024 the Consortium will support 5 Jobs Accelerators across different countries. 

  3. Business leadership is driven by the Good Work Alliance, which guides companies on improving work standards in the new economy while leveraging the Good Work Framework.
