A total of 119 organizations representing 14 key industries representing approximately 348,000 employee responses in the Aon Best Employers India 2017 study.

Aon believes that every organization has its own unique journey to become a Best Employer. a robust evaluation framework based on the principles of ‘Intent-Design-Experience’ was created to identify the Best Employers. Aon’s research indicates all three are equally important and in alignment to create a real competitive advantage through people..

A rigorous analysis is run on the inputs captured to measure the alignment between Intent-Design- Experience for all participating organizations. A shortlisted set is taken through an intense on-site audit to validate the details provided and look for innovative practices that truly differentiate these organizations. These details are normalized against Aon Process Maturity framework and presented to an external panel of an unbiased jury. The jury comprising corporate and academic community arrives at the final list of India Best Employers, with Aon playing a facilitator role during this evaluation. Client names are masked during this process, and revealed to the jury only post final selection.
