Who are we?
The Employers' Group brings together entrepreneurs and representatives of entrepreneur associations working in industry, commerce, services and agriculture in the 28 Member States of the European Union. Our members are active in the business world and in touch with the realities of everyday life. They are genuinely committed to putting their own experiences to good use to further the European venture.
What do we do?
We promote European integration by supporting the development of our businesses, which can play a key role in developing a prosperous society and creating jobs.
In these difficult economic times, the European Economic and Social Committee is the only European institution that brings together entrepreneurs and people fully involved in the economic and social life of their home country. We make the voice of business heard at European level.
The Employers' Group (Group I) has 117 members. We work closely with Europe's five major business organisations – BUSINESSEUROPE, CEEP, EUROCHAMBRES, EuroCommerce and UEAPME. Indeed, these organisations also include many of our own members among their ranks.
