We make the voice of business heard at European level.

The Employers Group (Group I) brings together entrepreneurs and representatives of entrepreneur associations working in a vast array of business sectors, from industry to retail and from agriculture to services, representing all enterprises from SMEs to large businesses. Our members are active in the business world and bring the day to day reality of business in all EU Member States to the European level. They are genuinely committed to putting their own experience to good use to further the European venture.

The Employers Group's work is framed by priorities reflecting the key needs of European businesses. In order to match the dynamics in which European businesses operate, these priorities are reviewed regularly. Our current priorities are:

  • Fostering EU values
  • Strengthening economic foundations
  • Bringing the EU to the digital forefront
  • Seizing opportunities provided by proactive climate action

Together, the Employers Group is striving to create a European business environment that provides opportunities for employers to grow and be successful.

We work closely with Europe's six major business organisations: BusinessEurope, Copa-Cogeca EUROCHAMBRES, EuroCommerce, SGI Europe and SMEunited. They are important allies in exchanging expertise and making our voice heard. Furthermore, we cooperate frequently with many other institutions and business organisations at national and European level.
