ACT/EMP Symposium on the Business of Representing Business ACT/EMP Symposium on the Business of Representing Business Business People EESE Toolkit

Employers' organizations represent a key asset in any society: its enterprises. Successful enterprises are at the heart of any strategy to create employment and improve living standards. Employers' organizations help to create the conditions for enterprise success by influencing the environment in which they do business and by providing services that improve their individual performance. As one of the three constituents of the ILO, employers' organizations have a special relationship with the Organization. The ILO's Bureau for Employers´ Activities is responsible for the nurturing and development of that relationship.

  • Survey of ASEAN employers on skills and competitiveness Survey of ASEAN employers on skills and competitiveness
    Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific - ACT/EMP
    Working Paper Series 2014


    This survey report, developed by Emerging Markets Consulting, aims to capture the perceptions of ASEAN employers regarding regional integration effects on human resources, labour mobility, commercial enterprise development and competitiveness. Given the diverse markets of the ASEAN community, it is unsurprising that employer reactions to imminent integration vary, and these responses are gauged against the extent to which the private sector understands the potential impacts of the AEC in 2015. The survey results served as a contribution to ACT/EMP's working paper no 7 on The road to the ASEAN Economic Community 2015: The challenges and opportunities for enterprises and their representative organizations.
