Influence Government

Policy Voice enables you to make your voice heard through monthly surveys on key business issues.

Launched in 2008 to help fulfil the terms of our Royal Charter, Policy Voice seeks IoD members’ opinions on the issues that matter to directors, including Brexit, regulation, skills and the economy.

Sign up today

Your responses are key to forming IoD policy, and shared directly with the people that matter in Government. Described as 'a closely watched poll' by The Times' Business Editor, your input makes an impact in the public debate.

Policy Voice participants - now numbering over 3,000 members - receive invitations to exclusive events and feedback on how the figures have been used. The table below shows how Policy Voice contributes to achieving wins and can keep influencing government in the future.

Policy Voice members making their mark in the corridors of power

Over recent years, we have successfully presented directors' views to government, with changes in many different areas with the help of Policy Voice members. Find out more.

During the coronavirus crisis, we have direct contact with the people that matter in government, securing legal protections for company directors and wider business support. Our current summary of the status of directors' priorities can be read here.

Policy Voice in the press

Policy Voice survey results often attract attention not only by policy makers, but also by the national newspapers. Here are some examples of how Policy Voice members’ input has made a difference in the past:


'Nearly one in five company directors whose organisations generally trade with the EU said that they had halted trade with the bloc that month, according to a poll of 905 members of the Institute of Directors.' - The Times


'The government consultation comes as a survey from the Institute of Directors of about 600 businesses showed that more than 60 per cent planned to adopt hybrid working even after restrictions eased.' - Financial Times


'To our mind, [the UK-EU-Sweden Post-Brexit Report] is a lot more constructive than most of what we’ve seen out of the EU and UK authorities. Have a read here.' - Financial Times


'More than two thirds of company directors believe a mass vaccination programme will improve their organisation’s prospects for next year, according to a poll by the Institute of Directors.' - The Times


'A recent poll by the Institute of Directors (IoD) reveals one in three directors believe their organisation is now more vulnerable to cyber attacks. Minimising the risk of cyber crime will continue to be a front of mind priority for business leaders.' - CityAM
