According to a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filing, the restructuring expected to be completed by year-end 2013 will generate about $180 million in employee termination costs and about $145 million in real-estate-related costs.
The SEC filing said the eliminated jobs globally are “predominantly non-client facing.”
As a result of the changes, Aon said, it expects to deliver total annual savings of around $355 million in 2013, including approximately $280 million of annual savings related to the restructuring plan, and additional savings in areas such as information technology, procurement, and public company costs.
The $4.7 billion acquisition and the formation of Aon Hewitt with about 29,000 employees was completed on October 1, 2010 (see Aon, Hewitt Complete Merger).
