The Aon Corporation, the leading provider of global risk management solutions and human resource consulting and outsourcing, on October 24th 2011 officially started “Pass It On,” a global employee and client engagement program that tells the Aon story to colleagues, clients and communities around the world by passing Manchester United footballs across six continents in eight months.
The initiative is part of a yearlong celebration of Aon’s 25 years in business and is meant to engage, expand revenue and amplify Aon.
In Africa, the journey of the football started in Cape Town, South Africa (the official “start” city) with a “Cape to Cairo” route in mind. This route saw the four “Pass IT On” vehicles being divided into two groups of East and West and embarked on a collaborate journey that serves to unify, engage and educate Aon employees.
It also allows Aon clients an opportunity to experience the true capacity of what Aon can do for their personal and business insurance needs while illustrating Aon’s commitment to addressing crucial economical issues, being risk and people.
“Pass It On” is now back in Botswana and will be arriving from Johannesburg through their office in Selebi Phikwe on Tuesday, the 16th January 2012. Next day the football will proceed to Francistown, en route to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
It is at these places that Aon Botswana will engage clients over breakfast and lunch around the Aon brand. The Managing Director, Dr. Thapelo Matsheka, will demonstrate how Aon leverages its global connectivity for doing good, empowering economic and human possibility everywhere.
The 2011/2012 .Pass It On initiative has its roots in the 2010 campaign where an official Manchester United football visited 50 Aon offices and travelled 154 000km around the world as part of the ‘Follow the Football’ initiative.
Aon is the official sponsor of Manchester United and this is the second year Manchester United has been under this sponsorship. The partnership between Aon and Manchester United is rooted in shared values, such as teamwork, integrity and the pursuit of excellence.
