    HUMAN CAPITAL & BENEFITS

    What We Are
    The only entity more complicated than a big company is an individual human. And HR is the lone department that must manage both.

    High-performing institutions cultivate and grow talent, carefully balancing costs and rewards. Willis Towers Watson's Human Capital and Benefits (HCB) business segment  is uniquely structured to help benefit programs control costs, drive engagement, increase productivity and deliver education.

    From employee benefits to executive compensation, we take a rounded perspective, based on leading-edge thinking, data, analytics and software, unearthing new ways to motivate people, foster wellbeing and implement solutions that work.
     
    Who We Serve
    Our HCB segment includes four areas:  Retirement; Health and Benefits; Talent & Rewards; and Technology & Administration Solutions (TAS).  Each of these areas relies on the software we create, especially TAS. Our software customers bring us unique challenges every day and we respond with dependable and elegant solutions.

    The TAS business is the administration provider of choice for the top 200 UK pension funds. Our proprietary system, Benefit Connect UK, supports over 175 clients with 2.3 million members. We develop modern technology solutions to support internal administration services and responsive web solutions for members and clients.

    Impact You’ll Make
    Cookie-cutter software works fine for companies of a certain scale. But the largest organizations in the world require a dynamic combination of enterprise-strength technology, world-class professional services, and reliable data to power an engaged corporate culture.

    We are growing our service proposition to include master trust offering, co-sourcing and multi-language administration solutions for global clients to help meet their changing administration needs. This rapid growth means we are in need of the world’s best development talent to help us deliver these cutting-edge solutions.
