"The core of any corporation's citizenship is how its business contributes to society and to the communities where its colleagues live and work," said Greg Case, Aon plc president and chief executive officer. "Today, our colleagues unite as a firm to give back to their local communities in order to empower those who need it most."
"Today, we come together as a firm to give back and have an impact on the local communities within which we do business," said Tony Gaffney, CEO of Aon Hewitt Canada. "Corporate citizenship means contributing to society beyond what you do in your everyday course of business. Aon's Global Service Day is the embodiment of that philosophy."
Aon's Global Service Day will feature a social media campaign in partnership with the Red Cross to raise money for a children's vaccination program in Mali. For every Global Service Day post by an Aon colleague to Instagram, Twitter and Aon's internal Yammer network, Aon will donate $1 to provide a Measles or Rubella vaccination for a child in Mali. With a goal of vaccinating 10,000 young people, Aon colleagues have the opportunity to make an impact on a community in need while also sharing their Global Service Day experience through social media.
Colleagues and community partners are encouraged to use the hashtag #EmpowerResults to share their events and activities.
