MEDEF

What is MEDEF's purpose ?

A MOVEMENT TO SUPPORT COMPANIES AND THE ENTREPRENEURIAL SPIRIT
With 750,000 member companies, 90% of which are SMEs with under 50 employees, and more than 20,000 authorised representatives to carry out 30,000 mandates, MEDEF is the largest entrepreneur network in France. This gives it the advantage of foresight coupled with the power to be proactive and responsive.

A UNIQUE LINK TO DECISION-MAKERS AND PUBLIC AUTHORITIES
MEDEF conducts a fully transparent ongoing lobbying effort with all the local, regional, national and European decision-makers to draw attention the company perspective.

A KEY PARTNER IN THE SOCIAL DIALOGUE
MEDEF is legally authorised to negotiate with labour and management on behalf of all companies and it orchestrates all the major interprofessional negotiations. It mainly focuses on fostering a vibrant job market and social protections that are modern and cost-effective.

A UBIQUITOUS VOICE FOR COMPANIES
The authorised representatives embody and endorse the guidance of entrepreneurs in all the economic and social parity groups at every level from district to country.

A SINGLE-MINDED AGENT OF CHANGE
MEDEF interacts with every level of civil society, even with stakeholders who are traditionally far removed from the business world, like youths, teachers, journalists, members of the legal community, local officials and artists. It sets in motion a broad range of concrete initiatives with partners in its push to “Make France a Winner.”

Medef position on Brexit

The French and British economies are intricately linked. Our primary trade surplus is with the

United Kingdom. Around 400 000 French people work in the UK. Every sector, each individual

company, has specific and unique interests regarding Brexit. Everything possible must be done in

the forthcoming negotiation to avoid lessening the quality and the strength of this relationship.

French companies must continue to be able to trade with the UK without supplementary costs or

restrictions. A level playing field must be ensured so that French companies can continue to invest

and create jobs.
