What is Policy Voice?

One of the central missions of the IoD is to represent the views of its members to government, campaigning for the big decisions that will deliver the business environment they need to thrive.

Launched in June 2008, Policy Voice is the IoD's authoritative public policy panel. Through a programme of short monthly online surveys and quarterly discussion forums, Policy Voice connects more than 3,000 members directly to the IoD policy and parliamentary affairs team, allowing members to shape the IoD's approach to key business issues which affect their organisations. Its success means the IoD policy teams can speak confidently on behalf of IoD members, knowing we have the regular feedback we need.

Policy Voice survey data underpins the policy reports and consultation responses that we publish on members' behalf, and informs the regular dialogue with ministers, government officials and other key influencers undertaken by the Director General and policy and parliamentary affairs team. Survey results are also regularly cited in the media. 

Discover the influence and effect of your Policy Voice input – read the survey results and research in our reports and news stories here on, in Director magazine and in regular blog posts on
