Properly functioning, flexible labour markets as well as the enforcement of modern-day human-rights and labour laws contribute to the competitiveness of markets – a key prerequisite for economic prosperity. Preserving and creating jobs at fair conditions is one of the greatest political challenges of our time. The vision here is to ensure equal treatment of religions, genders and generations.

Job creation and living wages are fundamental drivers of economic development. Companies’ impacts can be positive or negative, depending on business practices. Beyond generating profits and shareholder value, successful companies also develop human capital. Internal training programs and employee freedom to develop new ideas contribute to a firm‘s ability to persist in an environment of constant competition. Motivated people are more productive and create more value. But education and internship programs aren‘t all that matters. Companies who actively fight poor labour conditions and pay fair living wages are less likely to face reputational damages and legal issues. Apart from moral considerations there is therefore also an economic rationale to consider such factors as an investor.
