Tell us how the Covid-19 crisis has impacted your employer organisation

Take part in IOE and ILO-ACT/EMP joint survey of employer and business organisations before 2 June 2020

The International Organisation of Employers (IOE) and the ILO Bureau for Employers’ Activities (ILO-ACT/EMP) are conducting a joint survey to assess the challenges employers and business membership organisations (EBMOs) face as a result of the Covid-19 crisis.

The survey will take 15 minutes to complete. Your organisation will have received yesterday an email from ACT-EMP with the link to the survey. If not, please contact Jae Hee Chang at changj(at) to receive it. She will ensure that only one person from each organisation completes the survey.

Your views are critical. The survey results will be shared with EBMOs worldwide, offering insight into coping strategies and adjustments in response to the new challenges. 

The results will also help ILO-ACT/EMP adapt its capacity-development assistance with you and IOE to continue to shape its member services to meet your needs.  In addition, the results will further allow IOE and ILO-ACT/EMP to keep the ILO, development partners and donors appraised of the real demands and challenges EBMOs are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the slowing down of business activity.

All survey responses will be strictly confidential and non-attributable. The findings will be published in an aggregated and anonymized manner.  

We know you are extremely busy, with multiple demands on your time and competing priorities. We thank you in advance for dedicating time to our survey. If there is someone else in your organisation better placed to respond to the questionnaire, please forward it to them. The deadline for the survey is 02 June 2020.

If you have any queries or would like any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Roberto Suárez Santos (suarezsantos(at) or Deborah France-Massin (france(at) If you have any technical questions regarding accessing the survey or to receive a link, please email changj(at)    

We look forward to hearing from you.
