BUJUMBURA March 15th (ABP) – The Government of Burundi, in collaboration with the International Labor Organization (ILO), has organized a workshop in Bujumbura from 11 to 14 March 2019 to validate the country’s diagnostic study on decent labor.
The workshop participants discussed the training process of country’s program of the decent labor promotion for Burundi for 2019-2023. On that occasion, the expert from the International Labor Office (ILO), Mr. Florencio Gudino, made a presentation on results-based management for the formulation of the decent labor program in Burundi for 2019-2023.
In his presentation, Mr. Florencio Gudino immediately defined Results Based Management (RBM) as “an approach that aims to direct organizational processes, resources, products and services towards concrete and measurable results”. This technique uses the results chain, which includes the availability of budget to provide the means by which activities are carried out in order to obtain the products needed to achieve a desired objective.
The ultimate goal is to promote sustainable and shared economic growth, full and productive employment and decent labor for all. In this dynamic, it is important to promote development-oriented policies that favor productive activities, the creation of decent jobs, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation.
In addition, special attention should be paid to the promotion of social protection as well as to rights at work. Ultimately, it is important to invest in human potential, in labor institutions and in decent and sustainable labor.
