The effects of COVID on society, in general, will be felt for years to come. Behavioral changes and interactions have altered and adapted to a different awareness of health and wellbeing. A new Aon Global Wellbeing Survey Report 2022-2023, shows that companies are increasing their commitments both in support and financial investment to wellbeing. In fact, 63% of companies globally say employee wellbeing is more important to them since 2020 and 87% have a wellbeing initiative in place.

“It’s no doubt the COVID-19 pandemic was a catalyst in widespread prioritization of employee wellbeing around the world, driving business leaders to acquire a stronger understanding of workforce resilience to overcome uncertainty and volatility,” says Stephanie Pronk, SVP, Health Solutions with Aon. “As we adapted throughout the pandemic, many thought wellbeing initiatives and strategies might decrease in importance and priority over time, but our research finds just the opposite. Nearly two-thirds of respondents say wellbeing is more important to their company since 2020, and 85% of companies now have a formal wellbeing strategy in place, a 28-point increase since 2020. This data emphasizes continued growth and prioritization of wellbeing even after the wave of initiatives implemented in response to the pandemic.”
