Successful business in the 21st century is based on data: gathering it, managing it, leveraging it. The importance of data to create efficient and effective operations has grown exponentially in just a few years, tracking alongside the rapid proliferation of devices and the technological breakthroughs in networks and connectivity.

When augmenting the benefits package for your organization, it’s natural to focus on traditional perks that employees have come to
expect: PTO, health insurance, and maybe a tuition assistance credit here or there. But if you’re looking for creative and effective ways to stimulate employee engagement while also driving business results, you’ll want to consider the powerful impact of offering language-learning opportunities.
Where’s the connection? And how can you reproduce these benefits within your organization? This playbook offers a deeper look at why language learning has such a positive influence on employee engagement and business performance, as well as step-by-step instructions for implementing a language-learning program in your organization.
While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of Americans with access to health insurance, U.S. employers and employees continue to struggle with rising health care costs and changing workforce demands. Recent Aon research shows that 20% of health care consumers cite high health care costs as the major reason they have either declined health care coverage, stopped taking medications, or avoided care altogether. If the U.S. health care system is to succeed, stakeholders across the health ecosystem must influence change in each market—employer, individual, and government (Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare).
While each part of the three-legged stool is important, this paper focuses on five strategies Aon believes will strengthen the employer-based system—a system that provides health care coverage to well over half of Americans (61%, or 177 million).
The pressure is mounting and employers are feeling the pinch. As U.S. health care costs continue their seemingly inexorable rise, businesses are looking for ways to wrest greater value from their health care spend.
More and more, employers are looking for benefits strategies that help prevent chronic disease and, if it is present, encourage early, efficient treatment. The brass ring is getting employees to proactively manage their own health by adopting healthy behaviors, such as exercising and eating healthily. It’s better for the employees, it increases productivity, and it reduces health care expenditures.
So how are organizations today looking to craft health and well-being plans that deliver real results for employers and employees alike? This white paper looks at three key areas where new and innovative approaches are changing the equation.
