Aon Gamifies Employee Health with New App

Aon is about to change the health of employees by making it fun, interactive and engaging. 

It is currently rolling out a new digital health engagement app called Well One that will calculate the scores. The app will use dacadoo’s digital health score platform to score using various data.

Aon is also going beyond awareness building. The app will offer employees digital one-to-one coaching using artificial intelligence (AI). It will also share progress with peers anonymously. The company hopes that it will drive recognition and motivate healthy behaviors.

"Well One is an exciting enhancement to our wellbeing capabilities," said Alistair Connell, chief executive officer of Aon's Health Solutions, EMEA.

"The anonymous and aggregate data received from the Well One platform, coupled with Aon's data and analytics capabilities, will allow a deeper understanding into what employers and their workers need to thrive -- enabling sustainable healthy behavior change and helping them further reduce risk, manage cost and increase performance," he added. 

Well One will offer employees insights into managing their lifestyles and future finances. Companies can also benchmark against others in the industry.

"Our clients are recognizing that health is not just physical but rather a combination of factors -- including emotional, social and financial -- and all can affect an individual's wellbeing," said Tim Dwyer, chief executive officer of Aon's Health Solutions, Asia Pacific.

"Well One rises to this challenge, particularly in educating and supporting individuals' financial wellbeing and lifestyle choices to help change not just how they think, but what they do," he added. 

"We're very proud that Aon chose to partner with dacadoo to deliver the Well One digital health engagement solution to its clients," said Peter Ohnemus, president and chief executive officer at dacadoo.

"Aon has been at the forefront of health and wellbeing for years. By capitalizing on this new technology, it places Aon as a leading digital player in this strong global growth market."
