Polish Confederation Lewiatan
The Voice of Business
We are the most influential Polish business organisation representing employers' interests in Poland and in the European Union. Our aim is to support companies' development. We strive for stable economic growth, better legislation, healthy competition, more jobs and reinforced social capital. We associate 4,100 companies, which employ over 1 mln workers.
Our mission is to provide the best business conditions and support companies' competitiveness. For this reason, we are active in Poland, in the European Union and internationally. We are the only Polish employers' organisation with an office in Brussels since 2001. We also are a member of BUSINESSEUROPE, an organisation representing European employers' interests (41 business organisations from 35 countries, associating companies which employ 120 million workers). Our team of experienced experts and advisors cooperates with decision-makers on an ongoing basis. Lewiatan representatives sit on 450 councils, committees, groups and other decision-making bodies.
The confederation was founded in 1999. In 2004, we took over the tradition of a pre-war organisation of the Central Association of Polish Industry, Mining, Trade and Finance Lewiatan, and added the word "Lewiatan" to our name.
We constantly monitor barriers to entrepreneurship and prepare our own macroeconomic expertise. Why become a member and what are the benefits of the common voice of Polish entrepreneurs? See for yourself!
