ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
The new world
Today’s business is about people, and good people make good businesses. So says Aon Consulting, a $1.3 billion global human capital consulting firm based out of Chicago. According to Aon, the single largest challenge for the companies today is finding the right people to work for them, as baby boomers retire in developed countries, draining the talent pool, and developing countries—though growing rapidly—still do not have enough experienced managers. Companies are having a hard time meeting that challenge: One-third of managers hire below-average candidates “just to fill the positions quickly,” according to research conducted by Corporate Executive Board.
*In July 2010, Aon Corporation announced its acquisition of Hewitt Associates for $4.9 billion. Hewitt will be merged with Aon's current consulting and outsourcing unit under the new brand Aon Hewitt. The deal, which is expected to be finalized by November 2010, is the largest in Aon's history, and will nearly triple the size of its HR operations, making it a $4.3 billion business by revenue.Become a Gold Member or Log in to read the entire Scoop
