Georgia Labor Inspectorate Workshop

The Council of Europe project “Strengthening the protection of social and economic rights in Georgia” held a workshop for the Labor Inspectorate of Georgia on May 5, 2022.

The workshop is part of a training series to develop communication and interpersonal skills for employees and to further strengthen the institutional capacity of the LIO. The workshop also aimed to identify key concerns and areas for improvement, as well as the specifics of the Office's mandate and practice in dealing with difficult situations.

The labor inspection office is a newly founded legal entity under public law. In order to effectively enforce labor law, it must strengthen its social skills. This activity will facilitate high-quality work in communication with employers, employees and interested third parties in general, which will make the Office's work even more efficient. At the same time, social satisfaction contributes to the labor inspectorate gaining long-term public trust, which is essential for the office to function properly.

Nato Natenadze, First Deputy Chief Inspector of the Labor Inspection Office, pointed out that involving the management of the Labor Inspection Office in the process and ensuring that their contribution is taken into account in the development of upcoming training will be a solid guarantee of successful targeted training , which are based on real challenges and needs and ultimately develop the effective communication skills of labor inspection staff. She also pointed out that in addition to preparing the upcoming training series, the workshop was extremely interesting and rewarding in terms of improving management skills in communication and positioning. She thanked the Council of Europe for this and expressed hope for continued productive cooperation.

The event was organized as part of the Council of Europe project “Strengthening the protection of social and economic rights in Georgia”. The project is part of the Council of Europe Action Plan for Georgia 2020-2023.
