London, June 6, 2013 – Celebrating its commitment to empowering economic and human possibility around the world, Aon plc (NYSE:AON), the leading global provider of risk management and human resource consulting and outsourcing, today is holding its Global Service Day, where colleagues in 44 countries will volunteer their time and efforts to support local charities in their communities.
As part of the firm’s global mission, Aon’s company-wide service day provides colleagues with the opportunity to take time off from their work to engage in charitable activities that focus on providing assistance to organizations that empower people and serve communities at risk.
“Today, our colleagues unite as a firm to give back to their local communities in order to empower those who need it most,” said Greg Case, Aon plc President and CEO. “Corporate citizenship means going the extra step and contributing to society beyond what you do in your everyday course of business. Aon’s Global Service Day is the embodiment of that philosophy.”
Mr. Case will be volunteering alongside fellow Aon colleagues to host a day of activities for athletes from the Special Olympics in Chicago’s Millennium Park.
Aon has conducted similar company-wide service days in recent years. In 2007, a day of service was held to celebrate Aon's 20th anniversary as a global brand, in 2010, a day was held to commemorate the launch of the firm’s role as principal partner and global shirt sponsor of Manchester United, and in 2012, Aon celebrated its 25th anniversary with a service day.
From orphanages in Russia to soup kitchens in South Africa to global organizations like the Red Cross, Special Olympics, United Way and UNICEF, Aon’s efforts will touch charitable organizations in every corner of the globe. Through its partnership with Manchester United and the Manchester United Foundation, Aon has hosted numerous soccer clinics for children in impoverished areas around the world.
Aon colleagues will contribute to these and many other organizations during Global Service Day:
