International Organisation of Employers

The International Organisation of Employers (IOE) is the  largest network of the private sector in the world, with a membership of 150 business and employer federations in 143 countries.  In social and labour policy debate taking place in the International Labour Organization, across the UN and multilateral system, and in the G20 and other emerging processes, the IOE is the recognized voice of business.

The IOE seeks to influence the environment for doing business, including by advocating for regulatory frameworks at the international level that favour entrepreneurship, private sector development, and sustainable job creation.

The IOE supports national business organisations in guiding corporate members in matters of international labour standards, business and human rights, CSR, occupational health and safety, and international industrial relations.
