LONDON (2 May 2019) – Aon plc today announced the future launch of a new digital health engagement platform with dacadoo, a leading health technology firm, to help organizations enhance business performance by improving the health and wellbeing of their workforce.
Through Aon’s Well One application, which utilizes dacadoo’s digital health score platform, employees will be offered digital one-to-one coaching and the ability to connect virtually with colleagues to share progress as well as earn recognition to help influence healthy behaviors and increase motivation.
“Well One is an exciting enhancement to our wellbeing capabilities,” said Alistair Connell, CEO of Aon’s Health Solutions, EMEA. “The anonymous and aggregate data received from the Well One platform, coupled with Aon’s data and analytics capabilities, will allow a deeper understanding into what employers and their workers need to thrive – enabling sustainable healthy behavior change and helping them further reduce risk, manage cost and increase performance.”
Through artificial intelligence driven digital coaching and education, Well One gives employees the awareness and understanding they need to better manage their lifestyle and future finances. Individuals can compare personal health achievements to those across the organization anonymously, while businesses can benchmark against others in the industry.
“Our clients are recognizing that health is not just physical but rather a combination of factors – including emotional, social and financial – and all can affect an individual’s wellbeing,” said Tim Dwyer, CEO of Aon’s Health Solutions, Asia Pacific. “Well One rises to this challenge, particularly in educating and supporting individuals’ financial wellbeing and lifestyle choices to help change not just how they think, but what they do.”
Well One uses smart, accessible data analytics distilled through the physical, emotional, social and financial wellbeing of individuals, teams and organizations into simple health scores. Studies have shown that healthy, happy and motivated employees deliver higher performance and remain more loyal towards their employers over time.
“We’re very proud that Aon chose to partner with dacadoo to deliver the Well One digital health engagement solution to its clients,” said Peter Ohnemus, president and CEO of dacadoo. “Aon has been at the forefront of health and wellbeing for years. By capitalizing on this new technology, it places Aon as a leading digital player in this strong global growth market.”
Well One is first being offered in parts of Europe and Asia.
