About the Aon Global Best Employers Program

The Aon Global Best Employers program recognises the achievements of organisations that demonstrate excellence in the workplace and takes recognition to a global stage.

Organisations who achieve the Aon Best Employers status at a regional or global level will also receive promotional support from Aon through media support, local award ceremonies, being featured on the Aon Best Employers website and being invited to speak at events and conferences.


Our research proves that Best Employers drive consistent long-term performance through organisation cultures marked by effective leadership, strong performance culture, a compelling employer brand and high employee engagement.

These four measurable factors contribute to whether an organisation is named an Aon Best Employer.

The methodology used to determine an organisation's qualification as an Aon Best Employer is based on the most objective measure possible: your employees' opinions. The approach we use is an integral part of Aon's employee engagement methodology.

Using survey data collected directly from employees, the four indices described above are calculated for each organisation at country level and then compared to relevant Aon thresholds using our global employee engagement database. Aon's database for the last five years contains data representing the opinion of almost 9 million employees from more than 5,000 organisations around the world. The thresholds are determined by analysing the data from these organisations and are refreshed bi-annually.

Benchmarks are established for homogeneous groups of countries with similar cultural and employment practices ensuring that the Aon Global Best Employers program has both a globally consistent methodology and culturally relevant benchmarks.
