Top Companies for Leaders

April 24, 2014

Using the data from the 2014 Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders® study, we've compiled a report to highlight best practices in leadership development among the world's top companies.

Effective leadership is the key ingredient of ongoing success. That’s why we’re dedicated to discovering what the world’s best companies to do to find, develop, and keep great leaders. We use the Top Companies for Leaders® study to identify emerging talent management trends by comparing the practices of companies around the world on hundreds of data points.

The Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders® study is the most comprehensive longitudinal study of talent management and leadership practices around the globe. Data is gathered from participating companies using a detailed online questionnaire. From those submissions, finalists are identified and hundreds of interviews are conducted with senior line and HR executives. A panel of expert judges then determines the global and regional winners based on their responses to the survey questionnaire and interviews as well as financial and other publicly available information.

This report presents data from The Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders® Study to highlight best practices in leadership development and to help organizations understand how to build leadership capability that will enable strategy execution.
