At Aon, we define wellbeing along several essential dimensions: physical, mental, emotional, financial and social. Our wellbeing initiatives are designed to assist colleagues — as well as clients — by developing timely, relevant support networks.
“Wellbeing, resilience and human sustainability are strategic priorities at Aon,” says Rachel Fellowes, chief wellbeing officer. “This is because we believe having a ‘whole’ perspective on performance offers both a richer colleague and client experience and ensures we design better ways of doing things that help us bounce back and innovate over time. In practice, this means committing to new ways of measuring wellbeing, such as the Human Sustainability Index, and educating and empowering people to make meaningful changes for themselves, their teams and ultimately their organizations.”
Our colleagues benefit from resources that offer personal connections and guidance for individual wellness. Employees with children can join parent groups to discuss the intersection of professional and personal lives in remote work environments, and employee assistance programs are available to colleagues seeking extra support. Virtual counseling, wellness apps, videos, and webinars on topics like nutrition, mental health and physical activity provide digital resources for colleagues, ensuring workforce assistance is always available regardless of where work takes place.
