About Willis Towers Watson

 

Willis Towers Watson is a leading global advisory, broking and solutions company that helps clients around the world turn risk into a path for growth. With roots dating to 1828, Willis Towers Watson has more than 45,000 employees serving more than 140 countries and markets. We design and deliver solutions that manage risk, optimize benefits, cultivate talent, and expand the power of capital to protect and strengthen institutions and individuals. Our unique perspective allows us to see the critical intersections between talent, assets and ideas—the dynamic formula that drives business performance.

The story of Willis Towers Watson is a story of mergers. The firm as it exists today was created in 2015, following a merger between Willis Group and Towers Watson—itself a merger between Towers Perrin and Watson Wyatt Worldwide after years of direct competition between the two. Today, Willis Towers Watson is one of the world's largest HR and actuarial consulting firms, boasting over 40,000 employees and multiple offices on every continent but Antarctica. Its practices focus on human resources and risk and financial management.

Seasoned risk advisors with specialist industry experience and market know-how, they are able to craft strategies to quantify, mitigate, and transfer risk—whether that means using sophisticated analytics to harness Big Data, or looking at risk as a revenue generation opportunity. The result is a new way of embracing risk that drives superior results.
