Research output: Indexed journal article Reviewpeer-review

Abstract

The object of this paper is to collect and discuss examples of social benefits in emerging markets. The main approach is to identify a number of the current policies being applied in BRICS compared to those in Spain and the OECD. Emerging markets are countries that will become a reference for their industry, economy and social management in upcoming years. These countries should not disregard the role the workforce holds as being essential for their mutual benefit (both as employers and employees). For this reason, it is crucial to review the social benefits applied in these states and their companies. According to various studies, governments are implementing polices to increase maternity and paternity leave, the development of personal and work skills or other social benefits like discounts for personal fitness or transport vouchers.
