Towers Watson has re-hired Kim Honess as its Head of Flexible Benefits Consulting, after she joined Mercer in 2010. In this capacity, she will put her flexible benefits experience of more than a decade to work to lead and grow the firm’s flexible benefits practice.
Kim Honess moves back to Towers Watson after a five year stint at Mercer, where she has been the Head of Flexible Benefits since 2010. Prior to this, from 2004 onwards, she was the Head of Flexible Benefits Consulting of Towers Watson (and its legal predecessor Watson Wyatt). Between 2002 and 2004, Honess was an Operations Director at Gissings Technology Managed Services, and between 1998 and 2002, she acted as Pension Services Director at Paymaster. Before this, she spent almost two decades (from 1979 to 1997) working for IT services firm EDS, leaving the firm as IPC Manager. Honess started her career at UCSL in 1979, working her way up to Operations Supervisor.
Honess holds an MBA from The Open University.
At Towers Watson, Honess will be re-appointed as the firm’s Head of Flexible Benefits Consulting. She will leverage her twelve years’ experience advising companies on all aspects of flexible benefits across all sectors in the UK market to lead and grow the firm’s flexible benefits practice. She will also be tasked with ensuring that Towers Watson’s clients successfully implement the most up-to-date benefits programmes for their workforces.
Commenting on Honess re-joining the firm, David Cross, Head of Health and Group Benefits EMEA at Towers Watson, says: “I am delighted to welcome Kim back to Towers Watson. She has been heavily involved in taking new products and services to market and understands what solutions companies need and how to overcome challenges in implementing them.”
Honess adds: “I am extremely proud to have re-joined Towers Watson’s flexible benefits team at such an exciting time for the industry. I am looking forward to working with some of the best consultants in the industry to ensure our offering provides clients with whatever they need to design and implement excellent flexible benefits for their workforce.”
