Chicago Corporations Team on Developing Best Practices for Reopening
Aon, with U.S. headquarters in Chicago, is leading a coalition of major Chicago corporations to draw up safe standards for restarting the city’s economy from the coronavirus pandemic, the Chicago Tribune reported. The goal is to create best practices for companies and communities to function, as isolation measures are being eased while development of a vaccine is still in the future.
The coalition includes some of the Chicago area’s biggest and best-known companies, such as McDonald’s, United Airlines, Walgreens, Allstate, Hyatt Hotels and Exelon, along with JLL and Sterling Bay.
“There is zero playbook that exists,” said Aon’s Bridget Gainer. “As the economy begins to open up, we have the opportunity as a business community to step up and work together. More information is going to make that recovery stronger and faster.”
The group is working in consultation with Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker and Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
