Driving positive change for business
We proudly speak on behalf of Irish businesses campaigning for real changes to the policies that matter most to business.
Together with our trade associations, we lobby government and policy makers nationally and internationally to maintain a positive climate for business and drive economic growth. Policy is shaped by our diverse membership, who are home grown, multinational, big and small, spanning every sector of the economy and employ 70% of the private sector workforce in Ireland.
We regularly produce market leading industry and business events, positions on issues impacting business, economic research, forecasts and analysis. Our role as public commentator on the economy has been significant with our forecasts for the country's recent economic growth rates being accurate. We have identified the opportunities that these, along with low interest rates, provide for national infrastructure investment.
We also provide a wide range of professional services and management training to members on all aspects of human resource management, occupational health and safety, employee relations and employment law. With 230 staff in 6 offices around Ireland as well as an office in Brussels and connections in the U.K. and Washington, Ibec communicates the Irish business voice to key stakeholders at home and abroad.
Our Strategy 2020-2025
At the heart of every successful organisation, there is a clear and well-defined purpose. At Ibec, our purpose is to help build a better and more sustainable future by influencing, supporting and delivering for business success. We believe business is a force for good in Ireland by providing every one of us with the opportunity to lead successful lives, while also delivering the resources for a balanced and a more prosperous society.
