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 business leaders, including Brexit priorities, regulation, skills and the economy.

The data collected is developed into IoD policy reports, imbedded into every government consultation we respond to and shared in conversations with policy makers and the media.

Policy Voice participants, which now top 3,000 members, are thanked with regular invitations to exclusive events, opportunities to win complimentary places at IoD workshops and consistent feedback on how their insights have been used.

Watch the video below to find out more about how Policy Voice works and what we achieved throughout the course of 2017.





Policy Voice members making their mark in the corridors of power

Throughout the course of 2017 we successfully influenced Government policy and lobbied for changes to the law in many different areas with the help of Policy Voice members. Find out more.

2018 is looking to be a busy year for business leaders, with one year countdown to Brexit starting this spring and GDPR regulation coming into force in May. The IoD will continue to be the voice of business and to represent members in regular high-level conversations with senior politicians and civil servants.

The stakes of voicing your opinion as an IoD member are high – sign up to Policy Voice to influence the agenda!


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:


‘A survey of almost 900 members of the Institute of Directors has found that 30 per cent have not even heard of the regulation [GDPR]. Four in ten did not know if their company would be affected by the new rules.’ - The Times


‘A weak outlook for the economy is holding businesses back from making investments, according to a new survey of business directors.’ - City A.M.


‘The chancellor should enhance tax breaks for investment to bolster confidence among businesses at a time when optimism about the future is falling, the Institute of Directors has claimed.’ - The Times


‘A snap poll of 700 members of the Institute of Directors found a "dramatic drop" in confidence following the hung parliament.’ - BBC News


‘A poll of almost 700 business leaders conducted in the immediate aftermath of last week’s general election reveals a dramatic drop in business confidence and major concerns relating to political uncertainty.’ - The Independent
