Engagement and Leadership

Regardless of size, geography, or industry, every organisation makes significant investments in its talent. Success requires visionary leaders, exceptional talent at all levels, and the right strategies to keep that talent current, motivated, and focused. Aon Hewitt’s Talent Practice drives organisational success through leadership development, efficient talent management and mitigation of human capital risk.

We work with our clients to develop comprehensive, disciplined strategies for managing talent worldwide, by helping them create fully integrated talent strategies that work across borders, engage their employees, and achieve superior results.

We offer forward-looking solutions to help you:

  • Identify and develop the leadership talent needed for business success – now and in the future
  • Attract, select, manage, engage, reward and retain the right talent
  • Improve organisational effectiveness and the effectiveness of the HR function
  • Communicate to drive the right employee behaviours

We have consultants dedicated to making sure your programmes, policies and processes support a culture of high performance where teamwork, accountability, results and recognition are paramount. Our solutions are backed by a wealth of world-class data, as well as our experience in delivering HR services to nearly 20 million people.


Aon Hewitt is the authority on how to improve employee engagement. Low employee engagement is pervasive — nearly half of the world's employees are not engaged. Our research across more than 7,000 organisations indicates that each disengaged employee costs your organisation an average of $10,000 in profit annually. Can you afford this hidden expense?

At Aon Hewitt, we use employee engagement as a key performance metric to measure the resilience and sustainability of your organisation. We define "engagement" as the emotional and intellectual involvement that motivates employees to do their best work and contribute to your organisation's success.

We are the leader in integrating engagement research with practical application. Engagement is a concept we pioneered in the early '90s, and we have conducted surveys in more than 120 countries, in 60 languages, and in nearly every industry. We provide insights into employee survey results which mean that actions are targeted and have a high impact on business results. Our solution is complete — from survey design to reporting, action planning, and implementation.

Leadership Assessment and Development

Identifying and developing leadership talent is one of the most critical business needs in the modern workplace. Our award-winning solutions have helped organisations of all sizes - including some of the world’s largest – identify and grow their next generation of leaders.

Using competency-based leadership assessment and development programs - including web-based leadership simulations, executive coaching, feedback-intense development workshops, and ongoing action learning - we help clients increase leadership retention and improve leadership effectiveness.

Talent Strategy, Acquisition, and Management

Securing, retaining, and maximising top talent is the result of a thoughtfully designed talent strategy. In addition to our leadership and assessment work, Aon Hewitt helps clients anticipate talent needs with workforce planning solutions that align HR with business strategy. We also help clients attract, process and acquire the right talent for each organisation’s current business needs.

Organisational Effectiveness

In times of organisational change and corporate restructuring, the lines between roles can become blurred, with accountabilities and responsibilities becoming unclear. With decreasing resources, critical processes and activities need to be identified, streamlined and outcomes clearly articulated.

Aon Hewitt offers a solution. We can assess current processes and activities to build a profile of the necessary roles and responsibilities within an organisation. We then match position descriptions to give a clear picture of skill requirements and current skill gaps within the organisation, and escalate upward to include an audit of factors such as ‘span of control’, authority and delegation of authority. In addition we can review existing communications channels and restructure these to ensure maximum effectiveness.
