In their 2017 Annual Conference on
“Wages in Global Perspective: Monitoring Wages Worldwide through WageIndicator“,
the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Labour Studies (AIAS) and the WageIndicator Foundation demonstrated successfully the large and many contributions the venture has made with the supply of data and serious workplace information about employer-employee relations around the world. Various speakers presented milestones of the research over the years. The conference took place on September 1, 2017 at KIT Royal Tropical Institute, Mauritskade 63, 1092 AD Amsterdam. The conference program can be found HERE.
The event was chaired by WageIndicator Foundation Director Paulien Osse. The very successful WageIndicator movement had been initiated by Osse and AIAS Research Professor Kea Tijdens in 1999, and has now activities with websites in more than 92 countries around the world and provides detailed information on all kinds of self-reported wages and salaries.
AIAS and the WageIndicator Foundation are also partner institutions of the Global Labor Organization (GLO). Hence, the WageIndicator project is strongly supported by the GLO. Osse and Tijdens are both GLO Fellows, while WageIndicator Foundation Director Paulien Osse also serves as a member of the GLO Founding Council and the GLO Advisory Board. Among the conference speakers were also GLO Fellow Martin Guzi (Masaryk Uni Brno and CELSI, Bratislava), GLO Fellow Martin Kahanec (Central European University, Budapest, and CELSI, Bratislava) and GLO President Klaus F. Zimmermann (GLO & UNU-MERIT, Maastricht University), among others.
