Employers of Poland already associate about ten thousand companies employing in total approximately five million people – as confirmed by the court which pronounced the representativeness of the organization for the next four years. Thanks to it, Employers of Poland are still a key partner in dialogue with the government and within the Trilateral Commission.
Under the law, an employers' organisation is considered to be representative if it meets the following criteria: is nationwide, associates companies employing in total over three hundred thousand people and whose members’ main activities encompass more than a half of the Polish Classification of Activities (PKD; in the case of Employers of Poland it is 19 out of 21 sections).
The District Court in Warsaw, pronouncing that all those conditions are met by the Employers of Poland, confirmed a dynamic development of the organization. A few months ago we could boast of representing approximately seven and a half thousand companies employing in total around four million people. Both of these figures increased significantly - now we have ten thousand members who employ approximately five million people.
Since 1989 the organization has been working for the common interests of employers, the country's economic growth and social issues, including those related to social security and labour market. Employers of Poland take initiatives to support entrepreneurship, innovation, making science work to the benefit of the economy, and participate in the legislation process. They are active in the work of the Tripartite Commission for Social and Economic Affairs. The organization is a member of the European Economic and Social Committee - an advisory body to the European Union institutions.
