Aon Insights: Workforce Mindset™ Study

Key Findings on What Differentiates, What Rewards, and What Communicates

We know that the employment landscape is shifting—employee trust is at an all-time low, employee engagement remains flat, and generational differences prevail. In fact, more than one in three employees are looking to switch jobs in the next year, and nearly half of all Millennials expect to do so. Boomers, one of the largest employee segments, are among the least engaged.

What is really on the minds of your employees when it comes to the employment experience?

In Aon’s ‘Workforce Mindset™ Study’ we examine this question and look to discover what really matters to employees — and what you can do to deliver a compelling experience. The key findings are presented along three key areas:

  1. What Differentiates?
  2. Offer employees a fun, flexible workplace and clearly defined opportunities to develop their careers.
  3. What Rewards?
  4. Consider what’s most valuable and engaging to employees when marketing your total rewards.
  5. What Communicates?
  6. Authentic and hyper-relevant communication delivered through a variety of channels best reaches employees.
