Digital Wages for Decent Work in Peru- A Rapid Assessment

Digital wage payments (through bank accounts, mobile money wallets or prepaid cards) can benefit workers and enterprises and contribute to achieving public policy goals. But the transition from cash to responsible digital wages brings challenges such as limited financial infrastructure and new systems and tools that enterprises and workers need to adopt.

The ILO's Global Centre on Digital Wages for Decent Work conducted a rapid assessment that analyzes the potential for responsible digital wages in Peru. The assessment consists of an analysis of interviews with key stakeholders from government, trade unions, employers’ organizations, and financial service providers; interviewers with employers; and focus groups and interviews with workers.
