The month of June brings many holidays that Aon celebrates around the world, but it also includes several key days of recognition, kicked off by Global Day of Parents on June 1. During this past year, many of our colleagues felt incredible pressure to support children, family and friends—all while keeping up with meetings, deadlines and deliverables at work. While the firm moved quickly to address the evolving needs of our colleagues, we were especially proud of how Aon’s Health Transformation Team and People Organization worked together to develop a “Working Parents Guide.” The Guide offers tips and resources to help our working parents find solutions for managing work-life integration while navigating the demands of virtual schooling.
An example: In Australia, our local CEOs Rob De Souza, James Baum and Steven Gaffney took it upon themselves to help Aon parents keep their kids happy, focused and learning throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. They hosted CEO Storytime sessions to share their favorite books with Aon kids, parents and colleagues across Australia.
