Aon set to host fifth Health Symposium in Sydney

Sydney, 02 September 2019 - Aon (NYSE:AON), the leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, will host the fifth Health Symposium on Thursday, 5 September in Sydney.

Over 110 delegates are expected to attend the conference on this week bringing together leaders and ambassadors from across the healthcare industry to explore ways Australian employers can promote and provide healthy and productive workplaces.
Aon’s 2019 Asia Pacific Employee Wellbeing Study revealed organisations with high engagement that have wellbeing programs enjoy 21 per cent higher productivity, 22 per cent higher probability and 10 per cent higher customer ratings.
At Aon’s 2019 Health Symposium, Aon will continue the conversation around de-risking people with a group of uplifting, inspiring and best-in-class speakers including:

  1. Chelsea Pottenger - Mental Wellbeing Expert
  2. Annalene Weston - Burnout and Medicolegal Risk
  3. Scott Stephens - Healthy Communities and the Duty of Care.

The symposium will also address the importance of wellbeing and how it can create a more efficient, resilient and happier workplace.

Sessions will explore causes of burnout among employees and how to recognise and manage medicolegal risk. Other sessions will cover a range of highly topical issues including healthy communities and the duty of care, mental health and mindfulness and resilience.

Speaking ahead of the event, Kenneth Corcoran, Healthcare Practice Leader Pacific at Aon said, “In today's everchanging landscape, it is more important than ever to be equipped with a skillset to offer a safe and productive workplace. We are delighted to host yet another exciting Health Symposium and bring together the latest thinking and leading health and wellbeing professionals and speakers”.

The event will finish with the launch of ‘Spenditude’, a new book co-written by Aon’s Principal and Head of Financial Wellbeing in the Pacific, Paul Gordon. Financial wellness is a key component of wellbeing. Aon’s own research has found that financial wellbeing will not only support an employee’s quality of life – due to the direct link between financial wellbeing and mental health – but will deliver clear organisational benefits. Backed by extensive research, relatable case studies and in-depth interviews, Spenditute is a life-changing guide to help readers get on the right path to financial security through understanding behaviour to money.
