We represent employers' interests!

The Association of Employers of Slovenia (ZDS) is the first voluntary employers association in Slovenia representing and protecting the interests of employers. Since 1994, various companies have united in this Association whatever their size, form of ownership, or activity. In the private sector, a half of all employees are employed by more than thousand members, representing over a half of total capital in Slovenia.

The social partnership among employers, the Government and trade unions provide for the arrangement of relations in the socio-economic area and stable business conditions for companies. Establishing the employers' legal interests and framing common positions in relationship towards social partners is subject to a successful implementation of expectations and requirements of employers. This can be only achieved with a membership largely diversified. The power of an association as a partner in the negotiations namely depends both on the power and influence of members as well as the association abundance.

To become a member, neither the size nor the capital power of an individual member is important. The power and significance of an individual member are additionally created only by connecting with other members, namely, by becoming a member of the Association. However, we jointly give effect to the interests of companies, and ensure a representative and unitary voice of employers.
