    59000 Employees Worldwide!!!

    That is more than before Aon bought Hewitt out? I think the high then, about 10 years ago, was only 53,000 and Greg-Crista decimated it down to about 39000 or so? There has to be a 2012 restructuring plan in the works as all of these 59000 carbon units cannot be client-facing people. Gonna but cuts folks - have to be in the world of McKinsey.

    • Gee. Do you think the current numbers could be a combination of the Aon headcount (which you state as 39,000) plus the roughly 24,000 that Hewitt brought to the merger?

      I am not saying that there staff cuts are not occurring in selective spots. I frankly do not know. And sadly they are likely to continue to occur in various, random, areas. It is the unfortunate default behavior of the modern business manager. But the office cooler telegraph has been relatively quiet about layoffs - either actual or rumored - for some time. Indeed, there seem to be a fair number of open roles posted too. But you really need to do your homework before stirring up uncorroborated angst.

    • Somehow, I recall they had around 63,000 indentured servants around 2003-04. Gotta wonder how Aon is delivering the same level of service with 44% less staff.

      ....unless, of course, Aon has lost that business because of their lack of service.
