7 The role of employers and their organizations to influence the policy and legal environment relative to labour market/labour-related issues so that they are conducive to business growth and development.
8 The role of employers and their organizations The second role of an employers' organization - not relevant to the subject of tripartism - is the provision of direct services to members
9 The ILO and EmployersEmployers' organizations play an important role in helping society to set the conditions necessary to achieve employment and living standards objectives, because they express the needs of enterprises in a way that no other agency, or even individuals amongst their own membership, could.Employers' organizations help to enhance enterprise success by influencing the environment in which they do business, and by providing services that improve their individual performance.
10 International Organisation of Employers (IOE) Since its creation in 1920 the International Organisation of Employers (IOE) has been recognised as the only organisation at the international level that represents the interests of business in the labour and social policy fields. Today, it consists of 145 national employer organisations from 138 countries from all over the world.
11 ILO and WorkersWorkers and their organizations play a vital role in social dialogue. Along with the other tripartite partners - employers and government - workers make the ILO constitutional principle of tripartism and social dialogue a real life experience by applying them in practice. In order for this to happen, certain basic conditions have to be present - freedom of association and the right to bargain collectively.
12 European social dialogue European social dialogue is a unique and indispensable component of the European social model, with a clearly defined basis in the EC Treaty. It refers to the discussions, consultations, negotiations and joint actions undertaken by the social partner organisations representing the two sides of industry (management and labour).
