We commemorate World Productivity Day with a fiery passion for sharing our purpose of driving a productive and competitive South Africa.

Whether our efforts are focused on enhancing individual productivity levels, or inserting valuable and long-lasting initiatives to help organisations re-evaluate themselves, we aid businesses of all shapes and sizes to keep on track and reach their full productivity potential.

This includes promoting rights in the workplace and encouraging decent employment opportunities for all.

Collaborate to conquer together

We have partnered with various business formations to increase participation in our Competitive Improvement Services programmes. These organisations include:

In addition, we align with and support the core mandate of the Department of Employment and Labour and the International Labour Organization (ILO).

About the ILO

The only tripartite U.N. agency since 1919, the ILO brings together governments, employers and workers of 187 member states, including South Africa, to set labour standards, develop policies and devise programmes promoting decent work for all women and men.

The unique structure of the ILO gives an equal voice to workers, employers, and governments to ensure that the views of the social partners are closely reflected in labour standards and in shaping policies and programmes.

The main aims of the ILO are to:

  • promote rights at work
  • encourage decent employment opportunities
  • enhance social protection
  • strengthen dialogue on work-related issues

The Future of Work

The Future of Work initiative was proposed by the ILO Director-General in 2013 as one of the seven centenary initiatives.

The formation of an ILO Global Commission is to undertake an in-depth examination of the future of work that can provide the analytical basis for the delivery of social justice in the 21st century.

Our President, Cyril Ramaphosa, is one of the key chairpersons on this Commission whose role is to produce an independent report on achieving a future that provides decent and sustainable work opportunities for all.

The work of the Commission has been organised around four “Centenary conversations”:

  • Work and society
  • Decent jobs for all
  • The organisation of work and production
  • The governance of work

Productivity SA’s mandate is to promote employment growth and productivity by contributing to South Africa’s socio-economic development and competitiveness by assisting businesses.
