While at IFC, Nigel helped design the Better Work partnership with ILO, which seeks to improve compliance with labor standards and competitiveness in factories. He also oversaw IFC’s Jobs Study, which identified practical lessons for the private sector to create more and better jobs. Under his leadership, IFC has since established ‘Let’s Work’, a global partnership with private firms and other development finance institutions to implement the findings of the jobs study.
