The International Labour Organization (ILO) serves the needs of working women and men by bringing together governments, employers, and workers to set labour standards, develop policies, and devise programmes. The structure itself of the ILO, where workers and employers together have an equal voice with governments in its deliberations, shows social dialogue in action. Also, it ensures that the views of the social partners are closely reflected in ILO labour standards, policies and programmes.
