The Business

Talent & Rewards
The success of a company is, to a large extent, dependent on the quality and performance of its employees. Willis Towers Watson’s Talent & Rewards segment helps companies to translate their strategic objectives into an effective HR strategy, in which compensating, monitoring, and motivating the right people in the right way is a central theme. Our advice is always based on our analytical skills through an effective use of data and qualitative research.

In addition, Talent & Rewards has a Young Professionals program – which is focused on structuring the personal development of T&R’s bright young minds, as well as organising social events.

Executive Compensation
Willis Towers Watson is the global leader in executive compensation consulting, with 400 consultants advising over 2,500 companies worldwide on this topic. The Executive Compensation team is, as part of the Talent & Rewards segment, focused on the way in which companies can achieve their strategic objectives through their executives.

We are organised as a Benelux team. As such, we provide advice regarding (and to) the Board of Directors, Executive Committee and Senior Management population of the largest (listed) companies in Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg. In addition, we work together with colleagues across the globe on a daily basis in order to support our globally operating clients.

Our consultancy services are centered around the topic executive compensation, but cover a much broader range of disciplines including strategy, Corporate Governance (including regulations and legislation) and financial modelling.

Being a small and informal team, we partner (with the client) to determine to the most suitable solution to these issues, which are one of the “hottest” topics within the current public debate.
