The CBI represent 190,000 UK businesses, employing nearly 7 million people – about a third of the private sector workforce. Their membership base is diverse, from start-ups to FTSE 100s, across every sector and in every region. Their scale and ability to see the bigger picture helps businesses to collectively achieve what they might not be able to on their own. Senior politicians and government stakeholders rely on the CBI to be a united voice by convening and communicating views from businesses across the UK on big topics.
