A Guide for Employer and Business Membership Organizations

Driving up Resilience

The guide aims to support EBMOs seeking to increase their resilience. For our audience, composed of EBMOs’ representatives, reading this work can be taken as an exercise to 1) understand crises’ resilience and identify their gaps towards this goal, 2) learn and be inspired from other EBMOs around the world, and 3) improve their own resilience capacities.

The guide is based on recent EBMOs’ experiences around the world, including actions implemented before and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. In this regard, it presents practical examples and lessons from diverse types of organizations, including EBMOs with relatively high access to human and financial assets, as well as smaller organizations with fewer resources. 

The guide includes cases of organizations operating at national and local levels. While these case studies were the basis of this guide, the analysis also considered other relevant ILO’s publications and research. In essence, the material seeks to inform on overall crises’ resilience, beyond the ongoing pandemic.
