Aon to Invest $30 Million and Create 10,000 Apprenticeships by 2030
AON plc, a global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions, is expanding its pioneering corporate Apprenticeship program with an investment of $30 million over the next five years. The firm will lead the formation of new local Apprentice Networks in six new cities across the United States.
Aon will initiate the Apprenticeship program expansion with a starting class of more than 100 apprentices next year in the metropolitan areas of Chicago, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
Greg Case, Chief Executive Officer of Aon said, "The apprenticeship program has brought so many talented colleagues to our firm and we know it has tremendous potential to create new opportunities and professional networks for both apprentices and participating employers across the United States. This is an innovative way for employers to attract and retain diverse talent, prepare future leaders and contribute to building a more future-focused, resilient workforce."
Aon launched its apprenticeship program in 2012 in the UK and in 2017 in the United States, training more than 290 apprentices globally.
