Aon’s inaugural 2022 Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I) Survey evaluated organizations’ DE&I practices in benefits, work environment and culture.

  • By the numbers: The survey found that 74 percent of companies have an internal DE&I definition and policy. Highly engaged companies, defined as having 70 percent or more highly engaged employees, have a definition of DE&I 82 percent of the time, compared to 65 percent for companies with low engagement – those with less than 40 percent highly engaged employees.
  • From the expert: According to Aon’s head of advisory and specialty practice, Health Solutions, EMEA, Dr. Avneet Kaur, “The results clearly demonstrate a positive correlation between employee engagement and DE&I commitment in action.”
