Navigating Emerging Risks and Workforce Challenges to Find Growth

No matter your area of expertise—whether you are an accountant, architect, engineer, real estate agent or strategy consultant—all elements of the professional and business services industry face increasingly complex brand, growth, operational, reputational and workforce risks.

For example, professional and business services firms are particularly vulnerable to cyber attacks due to the large volumes of sensitive client data they hold, under growing pressure to address a wide range of legal and regulatory requirements plus environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, and must explore new ways to attract and retain an increasingly mobile workforce in a post-pandemic world, all while navigating rapid digital advances and new geopolitical tensions.

At Aon, our teams have deep experience across all segments of the professional and business services industry, and we partner with clients to identify and implement sophisticated risk mitigation strategies, drive growth through novel applications of data and analytics, and create sustainable people strategies that improve employee engagement, health and wellbeing.


Strengthening the People Dimension of ESG

Human resources leaders are at the center of activating ESG initiatives in the workplace. This has a critical impact on protecting a firm's greatest asset - its people.
