Aon Hewitt has announced the acquisition of Minnesota-based engagement analytics firm Modern Survey. Financial terms of the transaction have not yet been disclosed. This transaction strengthens Aon Hewitt’s suite of workforce analytics solutions, including business and human capital analytics, employee engagement, onboarding and exit surveys and 360-degree feedback. It will also enhance Aon Hewitt’s technology, reporting and dashboards that support managers’ ability to make decisions and take action. Modern Survey’s 40-person team will join Aon Hewitt’s current roster of nearly 3,000 “talent-aligned professionals,” including 350 colleagues in Aon Hewitt’s global Engagement practice.
Modern Survey founders Patrick Riley, Dan Riley and Don MacPherson will assume leadership roles in Aon Hewitt’s Talent, Rewards & Performance Practice. “As the war for talent heats up, companies have to take a more integrated and global approach to measuring human capital across the employee lifecycle that goes beyond just an annual employee engagement survey,” says Riley, CEO and co-founder of Modern Survey. “The combination of Aon Hewitt and Modern Survey, with its strong research capability, fast and nimble technology, depth and breadth of human capital solutions and global scale, is unmatched in the marketplace.” For more information, go to www.modernsurvey.com/news/aon-hewitt-acquires-modern-survey
