What we do

Capacity Building of Employer and Business Membership Organizations
ACT/EMP aims to promote strong, independent and representative Employer and Business Membership Organizations (EBMOs) through capacity building.

Relationship Management with Employers
Employers represent one of the three ILO constituencies that make up its tripartite structure.  ACT/EMP provides technical support to the Employers’ Group in ILO governance structures and ILO meetings. In addition, ACT/EMP works in close cooperation with the International Organisation of Employers (IOE), which acts as the Secretariat for the Employer’s Group and is independent from the ILO.

Private Sector Engagement
ACT/EMP is also the entry point for individual companies seeking to engage with the ILO since enterprises are part of the employer constituents.

Research and Knowledge Sharing
ACT/EMP is the internal resource within the ILO on the evolving nature of "the business of representing business".
