Aon has brought together some of the world’s leading companies to build the path to a New Better. The coalition includes large employers and other key organizations, who will work together to create a set of guidelines for Work, Travel and Convene efforts across leading businesses.
Starting in Chicago, and moving to New York, London, Singapore and Tokyo, the coalition will create a model and framework that will help restart the economy worldwide.
The goal is for member companies to share key learnings and insights related to planning and operations, to assess impact and measurement of efforts, to evaluate the latest technologies, and to develop a set of guidelines that can help navigate the challenges businesses face as society reopens throughout the recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This coalition of some of the world’s leading organizations will support local leaders to help the economy come back better and stronger than before,” said Case. “We are deeply committed to the communities we operate in around the world and are excited to begin this important work in Chicago. We know with the collaborative efforts of these companies, we can help businesses and cities around the world open safely and continue to grow and thrive.”
The coalition will share existing internal and external efforts as well as insights and learnings from their ongoing efforts across industries, sectors and geographies. This collective knowledge will then be used to create a first-of-its-kind benchmark to help develop key recommendations and guidelines to build a path forward. An initial report is expected in November 2020.
The initial group of coalition members includes: Abbott, Accenture, Allstate, Beam Suntory, BMO Harris, CDW, CNA, ComEd, ConAgra, Exelon, Fortuna Brands, Hyatt, JLL, McDonald’s, Mondelez, Morningstar, Motorola Solutions, Sterling Bay, Ulta Beauty, United Airlines, Walgreens, Whirlpool, Zurich and more.
