Read about IOE’s history

A brief journey through IOE’s history is now live on in English, French and Spanish.

As we reach the close of our Centenary year, IOE has published a short history of our organisation to highlight our extraordinary past and present.

Learn about the people and institutions who are IOE founding members. From detailed information on the views and role of employers during the first International Labour Conference to how we together met the challenges of the Cold War period, the fall of communism to the 2008 economic crisis – this digital edition of our history spotlights our evolution from an idea into an international institution that brings the powerful and balanced voice of business to global decision-making.
