This white paper presents IDC’s analysis of the business value organizations are achieving by using Cisco UCS as a platform for SAP HANA and other SAP Business Suite applications. This analysis is based on IDC’s interviews with 12 Cisco UCS customers. These organizations are all relatively large organizations (1,500–85,000 employees), with an average of 25,383 employees. Interviewees represent a variety of industries: natural resources, agriculture, energy, government, automotive, retail, food and beverage, distribution, technology, healthcare, and IT. These organizations are based in the United States, EMEA, Mexico, and Brazil.
When augmenting the benefits package for your organization, it’s natural to focus on traditional perks that employees have come to
expect: PTO, health insurance, and maybe a tuition assistance credit here or there. But if you’re looking for creative and effective ways to stimulate employee engagement while also driving business results, you’ll want to consider the powerful impact of offering language-learning opportunities.
Where’s the connection? And how can you reproduce these benefits within your organization? This playbook offers a deeper look at why language learning has such a positive influence on employee engagement and business performance, as well as step-by-step instructions for implementing a language-learning program in your organization.
While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) increased the number of Americans with access to health insurance, U.S. employers and employees continue to struggle with rising health care costs and changing workforce demands. Recent Aon research shows that 20% of health care consumers cite high health care costs as the major reason they have either declined health care coverage, stopped taking medications, or avoided care altogether. If the U.S. health care system is to succeed, stakeholders across the health ecosystem must influence change in each market—employer, individual, and government (Medicare, Medicaid, and Tricare).
While each part of the three-legged stool is important, this paper focuses on five strategies Aon believes will strengthen the employer-based system—a system that provides health care coverage to well over half of Americans (61%, or 177 million).
The pressure is mounting and employers are feeling the pinch. As U.S. health care costs continue their seemingly inexorable rise, businesses are looking for ways to wrest greater value from their health care spend.
More and more, employers are looking for benefits strategies that help prevent chronic disease and, if it is present, encourage early, efficient treatment. The brass ring is getting employees to proactively manage their own health by adopting healthy behaviors, such as exercising and eating healthily. It’s better for the employees, it increases productivity, and it reduces health care expenditures.
So how are organizations today looking to craft health and well-being plans that deliver real results for employers and employees alike? This white paper looks at three key areas where new and innovative approaches are changing the equation.
With all the complexities of the U.S. health care system, people consuming health care services continue to find it challenging to navigate. That’s why, for the fifth year, Aon Hewitt is pleased to partner with the National Business Group on Health (The Business Group) and The Futures Company to conduct the Consumer Health Mindset Study. The study explores the health attitudes, motivators, and preferences of consumers across the U.S.— particularly employees and their dependents as they interact with their employer-sponsored health plans, wellness programs, and the broader health landscape.
Along with our findings about the consumer health mindset, we recommend practical actions you can take to meet consumers where they are and guide them in navigating health care more effectively.

For many years, an organization’s approach to employee mental well- being was simply “leave your problems at the door”. But those days are gone. Not only are mental and emotional health issues losing their stigma, but businesses are realizing that failure to understand and fulfill employees’ total well-being requirements, such a physical and financial well-being, ultimately leads to reduced productivity and output.
Your business is important, and so are the employees who make it great. When they're healthier, they're happier and when they're happier, they're more engaged at work. That's why having a wellness program that works is the key.
Keas surveyed more than 100 Human Resource Executives across the United States via an online survey between July 31 and August 16, 2013. This survey tracked HR executive opinions on HR topics and plans and priorities for the 2014 calendar year. The survey revealed health and wellness programs are taking center stage in employee engagement and retention. With healthcare costs and obesity-related diseases on the rise and wellness incentives baked into the Affordable Care Act (ACA), this will be the first year health will play a major role in health benefits as organizations integrate preventative care programs to manage costs.
The start of the Affordable Care Act has been delayed to January 2015 and now is the time to get educated on provisions for Corporate Wellness Programs which are critical to combatting rising healthcare costs.
