The IEA is a non-profit organization. The work of the IEA is accomplished by voluntary academicians and practitioners. However, many initiatives for the development of ergonomics / human factors as a unique science and profession cannot be funded with existing sources of revenue. The IEA Sustaining Membership program supports the science and application of ergonomics / human factors worldwide. including in industrially developing countries and also in informal work sectors where alternate financing might be limited.

Organizations and individuals are invited to become Sustaining Members. Sustaining membership shows a commitment to improving well-being and performance of humans. It provides exposure and enhances the image of sustaining members. Sustaining membership helps the IEA to disseminate ergonomic knowledge to industry and society at large, to promote ergonomics education and competency standards, and to support the work of the specialized Technical Committees.
