Aon Singapore Celebrates Global Service Day
(7 June 2013)
Celebrating its commitment to empowering economic and human possibility around the world, Aon organised its Global Service Day, where colleagues in 50 countries volunteered their time and efforts to support local charities in their communities.
As part of the firm’s global mission, Aon’s company-wide service day provided colleagues with the opportunity to take time off from their work to engage in charitable activities that focus on providing assistance to organisations that empower people and serve communities at risk.
On Friday 7 June 2013, over 150 Aon colleagues brought elderly beneficiaries from three voluntary welfare organizations - Silver Ace, Lion Befrienders and Boon Lay Neighbourhood Link - to the Gardens by the Bay for a day of recreation. Within the beautiful surrounding
of these gardens, over 100 elderly enjoyed Singapore’s newest attraction whilst interacting with Aon colleagues.
In total, Aon Singapore donated over 700 service hours to the 2013 Global Service Day.
From orphanages in Russia to soup kitchens in South Africa to global organizations like the Red Cross, Special Olympics, United Way and UNICEF, Aon’s efforts touched charitable organizations in every corner of the globe. Through its partnership with Manchester United and the Manchester United Foundation, Aon has hosted numerous soccer clinics for children in impoverished areas around the world.
Aon has conducted similar company-wide service days in recent years. In 2007, a day of service was held to celebrate Aon's 20th anniversary as a global brand, in 2010, a day was held to commemorate the launch of the firm’s role as principal partner and global shirt sponsor of Manchester United, and in 2012, Aon celebrated its 25th anniversary with a service day.
