Best Corporate Adviser: Aon

It was not size that persuaded the judging panel to name Aon Best Corporate Adviser, but the way the firm had marshalled its many resources to deliver a first grade corporate benefits engagement package that delivers both for employers and employees.

As well as developing impressive benchmarking and risk forecasting propositions, Aon has implemented its revolutionary Bigblue technology – which combines aggregation with compelling financial education – in 134 organisations, supporting nearly 1 million UK employees in flex, pensions, auto-enrolment, health and wellbeing, group risk and financial education.
