Aon Receives Perfect Rating On Corporate Equality Index For Sixth Straight Year





CHICAGO, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --  Aon plc (NYSE:AON), the leading global provider of risk management and human resource consulting and outsourcing, today announced that for the sixth straight year the firm has received a perfect 100 percent rating in the  Human Rights Campaign Foundation's Corporate Equality Index.

The 2013 Corporate Equality Index rated 889 companies on the extent to which they protected their lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees, consumers and investors. Of the 889, only 252 companies received a perfect score. To achieve a perfect score and the distinction of "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality," companies must have fully inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, provide equal employment benefits, demonstrate organizational LGBT competency, evidence their commitment to equality publicly and exercise responsible citizenship.

"Aon succeeds as a firm in part because of the incredible diversity that exists among our 62,000 global colleagues," said Greg Case, Aon's president and chief executive officer. "Opportunity at Aon is defined by one's character and desire to excel, not by their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability, age, or citizenship. We are very grateful to our LGBT business resource group, Aon Pride Alliance, which plays an instrumental role in identifying ways Aon can further support our LGBT colleagues and the LGBT community. It is a tremendous honor and a credit to our colleagues that Aon received a perfect 100 percent rating in the Corporate Equality Index for the sixth straight year."

Aon consistently is recognized for its commitment to diversity and inclusion. Aon has been named to the 2011 and 2012  Working Mother 100 Best companies lists, and was named one of America's best employers for veterans by Military Times EDGE magazine in 2011 and 2012. Aon has had numerous women leaders named to Business Insurance magazine's "Women to Watch" list every year since the list was launched in 2005.
