For Alyson Shanks, WTW Lead Associate for Broking, FINEX, Cyber & TMT, flexibility means spending more time with her children.

"My team is very supportive, especially my manager who advocates for flexible working. I love how I can see my children and spend more quality time with them," explains Alyson. 

Supporting an inclusive environment 

WTW  understands that flexibility is key to supporting an inclusive and diverse workforce, so the company provides a variety of different working arrangements which it calls WTW Work Flex.

WTW encourages its colleagues and candidates to make requests for the types of flexible working arrangements that migt best suit them. These requests might include, but are not limited to:

  • Location-based arrangements - WTW has three working styles: remote, in-office and hybrid. The majority of WTW's colleagues work in the hybrid style, with a mix of remote, in-person and in-office interactions, dependent on the needs of the team, role and clients. 
  • Flexible working patterns - WTW trusts its employees to know their work and the people, tools and environment they need to be successful. WTW is focused on creating the best outcomes, for clients and colleagues, not where or when this is achieved. Some examples of flexible working patterns may include job sharing and part-time working.
