NEWS - Aon Looks to Strengthen Enrollment, Voluntary Capabilities with Universe Acquisition

May 25, 2016 – Citing complimentary goals for the future of employee benefits, brokerage and consulting giant Aon Hewitt intends to acquire benefits enrollment and communications firm Univers.

“We are very excited about the opportunities our new partnership with Aon will deliver to our clients, our distribution partners and our people,” Greg Morano, CEO of Univers says. “Aon’s proven commitment to systems and talent development aligns perfectly with our continued desire to innovate great enrollment and employee engagement solutions for our marketplace.”

Will Sneden, U.S. health and benefits practice leader for Aon Health, says the partnership is a result of increasing need for “elective benefits,” also known as voluntary benefits, employers seek to impart to their employees’ physical, financial, emotional and social wellbeing.

“Aon has deep experience, powerful analytic tools and strong carrier relationships to help companies create easy-to-deploy elective benefits programs,” Sneden says. “Acquiring Univers complements these capabilities and enables us to offer an end-to-end elective benefits solution that provides an integrated, holistic and high-touch enrollment experience.”
