Effective representation for employers’ and business member organizations
This programme provides training to strengthen employers’ representatives for economic growth, development, and poverty alleviation.
The programme helps EBMOs and enterprises gain a better understanding of current policy debates around business and human rights, at the national level and within global supply chains.
It supports them through advisory services, strategy development, and services that promote responsible business conduct.
EBMOs are effective when they respond to their members’ representation, advocacy, and service delivery needs. Building more strategic EBMOs involves improving organizational structures, governance, and communication.
EBMOs may expand or professionalize their service portfolios to more closely match their members’ needs, as well as increase revenues. Service offers may include training courses and networking opportunities for members.
EBMOs impact the business environment through research, advocacy efforts, and social dialogue interventions. Policy areas include green jobs, skills development, and the future of work.
Responsible business conduct entails compliance with laws and societal expectations, such as those on respecting human rights, financial accountability, and corporate social responsibility. Actions may be defined by national and international law, key stakeholders, and enterprises themselves.
