Aon is in the Business of Better Decisions
At Aon, they partner with their clients to help shape business decisions for the better.
They are not tied to a traditional way of doing things. This shows in how they do business and in how the work. Their people are motivated by:
Their Clients. Aon is dedicated to helping clients meet unmet or unfulfilled needs stemming from today’s rapidly changing, increasingly complex, and interconnected challenges.
Their Purpose. They shape decisions for the better — to protect and enrich the lives of people around the world. Aon believes that businesses thrive when the communities they serve and the people they employ also flourish.
Their Colleagues. Aon’s people are the heartbeat of their firm. Their passion for clients is what unites them, drives them, and brings out the best in them. Across Aon, they create a culture of opportunity for their colleagues — driven by collaboration and innovation. Ultimately, Aon colleagues are more relevant, more connected, and more valued in ways that enable them to achieve their full professional potential.
Aon’s Guiding Principles for Flexible Working
Aon invites colleagues and candidates to have an open conversation with them about their flexible work needs and is proud to be recognised as a FlexReady Certified employer. These are their principles for working flexibly together:
- Mutual respect, trust, and accountability are the foundations.
- Their colleague’s experience is collaborative within and between teams. They spend time together listening, learning, and solving.
- Aon empowers colleagues to work together to deliver on the promises they make to clients.
- They agree on what works at an individual and team level and adjust as and when required.
- Aon recognises and embraces individual styles of working which allow colleagues to do and be their best.
- Flexibility is not a benefit nor an entitlement, it’s just the way they do things.
The benefit of having some added flexibility means I can balance my work and personal life a lot better. Having a weekly in-person visit once or twice a week means I can get a good social balance and feel connected to the team. I’d call my working style hybrid. It’s a life-changer – Tatiana Gratcheva, Lead People Partner, Wealth Solutions APAC
Aon is committed to creating a diverse, inclusive and collaborative workplace culture—one where colleagues feel empowered to unleash their full potential while expanding client and community impact and enabling business growth. They believe diversity drives insight, and that by giving the top talent seats at their table, they’ll produce the best outcome for clients.
To be a leading professional services firm, Aon aspires to model an inclusive work environment and unmatched and diverse talent strategy.
