About the Aon Best Employers Study
The Aon Best Employers program is a global study that was first conducted in 2001. In Asia, it is run in 12 markets: China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Australia and New Zealand. Participation in the program helps define what makes a winning workplace.
The Aon Best Employers India 2016 Study, in partnership with BW Businessworld and Bloomberg TV India, covered 113 companies across 12 industries, cumulatively employing approximately 950,000 employees.
A rigorous analysis is run to measure the alignment between “Intent-Design-Experience”, assessed through CEO survey and interview, people practices survey and employee opinion survey for all participating organizations. A shortlisted set is taken through an intense on-site audit to validate the details provided. Client names are masked during this process, and revealed to the jury only post final selection. An external panel of unbiased jury comprising corporate and academic community evaluated the participants and arrived at the final list of India’s 25 Best Employers of 2016.
