ILO extends link to ILES


The International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) Senior Workers’ Specialist responsible for the SADC Region, based in South Africa’s Pretoria office, David Darkenoo and his delegation, are in the country visiting various partners and stakeholders.

The delegation met with some of the board members of the Institute for Labour and Employment Studies (ILES), Botswana Public Employees Union (BOPEU) representatives, and the management and staff of ILES where the institute’s CEO Shandukani Hlabano welcomed them. The visit follows a successful inaugural labour conference that ILES hosted in July 2022. At the conference, the ILO’s Mandoro Limpho gave a resounding presentation that aligns with ILES’ programming and eminence, cementing a mutual relationship between the two entities. Welcoming the ILO delegation to ILES, Hlabano said: “Our vision is captured in our recently developed three-year strategy. We envision ILES to be a school of excellence in all labour and employment matters. We believe that in the short to medium term, ILES will be the centre of excellence for labour and employment. We hope to create an information hub for labour matters."
