A Salute to Towers Watson
Honestly, we like companies that stand the test of time. While we do get a few diamonds in the rough as far as startups are concerned, when it comes right down to it, there is nothing like a company that knows its business and has been doing what it does for decades.
Enter Towers Watson, an incredible international firm that helps businesses of all sizes with benefits administration, risk and financial services as well as talent management, employee recognition and rewards programs. They’ve also always got something burning on the mergers and acquisitions front, having gone through one recently themselves.
Towers Watson was actually the result of a merger that took place between 75-year veteran Towers Perrin and Watson Wyatt in January of 2010. The roots of the company, however, go back to as early as 1871, when the founders were providing valuations to local businesses.
Fast forward to today, and you have a firm that employs more than 14,000 associates globally and provides services like employee benefits, staff recognition, risk management, capital management and talent management to large corporations around the world.
Many organizations ignore the importance of managing risk in their business and the downfall of this can be not only significant but costly as well. If you are in the business of insurance, then you’d be among the 75 percent of businesses that employ Towers Watson in order to manage their capital risk.
Looking for a flexible benefits option? So are most organizations and where money is a factor. Towers Watson is there. There are so many different aspects involved when it comes to managing benefits and Towers Watson can help walk you through all of them. They provide outstanding benefits outsourcing to more pension funds than any other consulting firm in the world.
Did you know that changing your corporate culture can change your business entirely? People no longer believe that an investment in your human capital is an investment in the viability of your organization, but it is truer now than it ever was.
Towers Watson still believes that people are your most important asset and that recognizing their individual skills and abilities is what will help you help them to be the best possible employees. Good employees who are happy and well adjusted are more likely to be that much more productive.
Productive employees means increased revenues for you as well as lower health care costs and less time off work as well. Never underestimate the benefits that come with rewarding your staff for a job well done, no matter how small you consider the reward to be. With Towers Watson, there’s always a customized solution for managing your human capital that is sure to be well within budget and right on target.
If you’re looking for a company with literally decades of experience in providing the world’s top companies with human resources solutions that helped it become what the company is today, then look no further than the tried, tested and true methods employed at Towers Watson.
