About the Aon Legal Employee Engagement Group study

In 2017, Aon began The Aon Legal Employee Engagement Group study and has gathered insights on nearly 10,000 professionals working in the legal sector from across the UK, mainland Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas.

From the research, we were able to unlock insights including:

  • The state of engagement in law firms compared to other professional services organisations
  • The impact partners can have on employee engagement at law firms
  • Opportunities to increase associate and trainee engagement and improve performance
  • Trends from the business services professionals who enable partners, associate and trainees to deliver exceptional client service

Aon's Legal Employee Engagement Model

Aon's engagement model is based on over 50 years of research. Tailored for law firms, it asks partners and employees about their day-to-day work experiences and assesses the impact these experiences have on their engagement with the firm.

Our research into the legal sector found that in departments with above average engagement enjoy an average 33% less attrition.
