Partnership announced to strengthen Australian business
Sydney, 20 January 2021 - Aon (NYSE:AON), the leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, has today announced a partnership with Business Australia, helping to strengthen and support the business community in Australia.
As one of Business Australia’s partners, Aon will work closely with Business Australia members via a referral service, whereby Aon may offer broking, insurance and other services to small to medium and larger firms across the Australian business community.
Business Australia operates across Australia providing tools, resources and advice to support businesses of all sizes.
Kevan Johnston, Managing Director – Commercial at Aon said he was excited to build a lasting relationship with Business Australia and work together to ensure businesses of all sizes remain a strong economic force following COVID-19 disruption.
“Our common goals are to ensure that all Australian businesses remain supported through these times, and that means putting into place the right programs for each business, and helping clients make fact-based decisions around issues such as insurance and risk exposure. For example, we know that the majority of businesses that do not have appropriate insurance do not survive severe and very large losses in business interruption, often occurring from fire, flood or significant storm damage. Even cyber events can challenge the existence of small and medium business if overlooked. By joining with Business Australia we can help businesses focus on what they do best, and ensure they remain more successful than ever coming out of this tough time. Both small to medium sized firms and larger firms with more complex needs will benefit from this partnership, and we look forward to working with Business Australia to explore what we can offer to the business community together,” said Johnston.
Business Australia Chief Customer Experience Officer Richard Spencer is delighted to be working with Aon to help educate Australian businesses on the importance of the right insurance cover.
“Insurance is a primary concern for our members so the launch of this service will support them to find the right insurance solution for their needs, no matter their size or industry. Having the right cover can be critical to mitigating risk and even survival so we encourage business owners to act now to protect their business.”
