Describe your journey as a WTW returner.
In April of 2017, I was living in Chicago where I joined WTW as a Business Development Associate focused on middle-market growth. After several years in Chicago, my wife and I decided it was time for a change and we moved back to her home state of Ohio. After leaving WTW, I worked at two other companies — although these were both great experiences, I missed the culture, colleague relationships and business capabilities at WTW. This led me to rejoin the company and I am now pleased to be working in the East Central region as a Producer.
What do you enjoy most about working at WTW?
WTW has an amazing culture and since coming back, I’ve been reminded daily why I joined the company to begin with. I’m grateful to have been welcomed back to such a solid team.
Everyone’s willingness to collaborate and deliver top-of-class solutions to our clients continues to impress me. Working with talented colleagues across our different lines of business helps us deliver to our clients what they need; this makes the work we do incredibly rewarding.
What do you appreciate about your current work style?
I currently work in a hybrid model. Our office in Columbus, Ohio is brand new, and having access to a workspace has been great after only being able to work remotely at other organizations. I appreciate that I now have the option to work in-office or remotely if I choose to. This was important to me when deciding to return because maintaining a healthy work/life balance was a focus of mine.
How have you been supported by your colleagues since returning to WTW?
Everyone I have met has been kind and willing to help as I enter a new market. From newer colleagues like myself, all the way up to senior leaders, I have felt the love. The enthusiasm and encouragement I’ve received has reassured me that returning to WTW was the right decision.
