The International Organisation of Employers (IOE) is the largest global private sector network, representing 50 million businesses in nearly 150 countries.

Issues impacting employment and business are expanding in scope and pace.

"I am pleased to lead IOE as the voice of business in social and employment policy discussions at the ILO and other global forums. Our purpose is to ensure that these policies foster an enabling environment for business and play a key role in wealth and job creation. 2020 is an extraordinary year as we celebrate our Centenary and reaffirm our global role. Please join us as we build IOE's future together."

Erol Kiresepi, IOE President
