Aon Hewitt Congratulates Clients Named As Best Employers For Healthy Lifestyles By National Business Group On Health

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Aon Hewitt, the global human resource solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE:AON), today congratulated its valued clients who were recently named as Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles by the National Business Group on Health, including Cardinal Health, HP, Ingersoll Rand, JPMorgan Chase, McKesson, Michelin and NextEra Energy, among others.


The Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles awards recognize the most outstanding workplace well-being programs—programs that are comprehensive, achieve strong levels of engagement and improve health outcomes. Winners are selected by an independent panel of judges. Approximately one-third of the 66 organizations named as Best Employers for Healthy Lifestyles have worked with Aon Hewitt to design, implement and/or communicate comprehensive health and wellness strategies to employees and their families.

"Efforts to alter the rate of growth in health care costs must begin with employer support and encouragement for healthy lifestyles for employees and their families," said Jim Winkler, Aon Hewitt's chief innovation officer for Health & Benefits. "Employers that invest in workplace well-being programs and design them in a way that encourages participation and drives positive outcomes not only will see their health care spend reduced significantly, they will have a healthier, more productive and engaged workforce."

HP was one of two companies this year to be named as a Global Distinction Award winner, which identifies and rewards companies' efforts to enhance the physical, psychological and emotional health, well-being and productivity of global employees and their dependents. HP was recognized for its efforts toward building a global culture of wellness through its "Winning with Wellness" initiative, which provides employees with user-friendly tools and resources to take charge of—and be accountable for—managing their own personal wellness. HP has implemented its "Winning with Wellness" initiative in 33 countries around the globe in the last 12 months. Aon Hewitt worked with HP to articulate its global wellness strategy, identify the core program components and create a roadmap for implementing and communicating the initiative around the world. Aon Hewitt and HP also are working together on a number of health and wellness initiatives related to HP's "Winning with Wellness" program, including further expansion of its global program into new countries and the implementation of multiple on-site health clinics in the U.S. and in India.

"Our global wellness program focuses on three main areas—financial well-being, physical health, and stress management—that work together to create a well-rounded foundation for personal wellness," said Samanntha DuBridge, senior director, Global Benefits Strategy, HP. "By integrating common wellness themes with each country's unique culture and environment, we are able to create a true culture of health that drives engagement, productivity and diversity, and provides our employees with the tools necessary to take charge of their personal wellness."

Aon Hewitt has been a long-standing partner of the National Business Group on Health to promote employer investment in health and well-being programs. Aon Hewitt representatives sit on the boards for both the National Business Group on Health Institute on Innovation in Workforce Wellbeing and the Institute on Health, Productivity and Human Capital. On June 27, Aon Hewitt's Clinical Health Improvement Leader Stephanie Pronk spoke at the National Business Group on Health's Innovation in Workforce Well-being Leadership Summit held in Washington, DC. Pronk spoke about how employers can create an optimal health metrics plan, including strategy, design, metrics and process.
