Dynamism refers to progressive modifications to improve efficiency and equity in administrative processes. Unlike other governance principles that aim to preserve and strengthen existing organizational structures, dynamism actively seeks to enhance them. This is particularly vital in social security, where adapting to the changing needs of beneficiaries ensures that programmes remain relevant and effective.

This ongoing evaluation and adaptation to the evolving needs of social protection are crucial to foster a culture of innovation and continuous improvement within the governance framework. Strong leadership, the innovation and clear communication are critical for engaging human resources management and staff as agents of positive change in the organization. Leadership also plays a vital role in promoting creativity and agility, which are necessary for evolutions in the governance of social security to meet the needs of an ever-changing global landscape, and the key factors in improving resilience in the institution.

This webinar will dive into specific examples of how dynamism plays a role in the governance of social security organizations. We will examine how dynamism helps institutions continuously assess and respond to organizational and member’ needs, changes and support the organization's evolution to meet emerging challenges.

Join us for this ISSA Webinar that will discuss experiences from institutions that have leveraged dynamism in good governance to meet ever growing needs in social protection.
