Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Burn Domingo, I am a Data Analyst in the Project Health and Benefits North America team. I started my career at WTW in June 2019 and since joining I have been overwhelmed by the amazing working environment and inclusivity at WTW.
How would you describe the environment at WTW?
In my opinion, the environment at WTW is very inclusive, and the people at WTW are what makes it a great place to work. I was lucky enough to work with some trainers from the US team who were incredibly friendly, approachable, and always willing to lend a helping hand. WTW’s values are deeply rooted within the company and this was clear from the very start of my career here.
What does it mean to you to be a part of the WTW community?
I am part of the LGBT+ community and because WTW has an incredibly inclusive and diverse working environment, there is no discrimination or judgment and we are all completely respected as individuals.
Do you feel like you can truly bring your full self to work at WTW, and if so, why?
I feel like I can always bring my true self to work, without the fear that I will be judged. There is a great work-life balance at WTW which allows me to be myself at work and I am also encouraged to enjoy my personal time. WTW ensures that their colleagues feel included and appreciated, while encouraging us to be ourselves, whoever that may be.
What is your favourite thing about working at WTW and why?
I really enjoyed being a part of one of the WTW Engagement Team projects. Here I was able to share a lot of ideas that encouraged our colleagues to become more involved and enjoy the environment at WTW. Another thing I appreciate are the training opportunities that are conducted for free across the business, which provide new opportunities to colleagues.
What advice would you give to future candidates that are considering joining WTW?
Joining WTW has made me much more confident as a person and has aided in my development of many skills. They have helped me grow and are not afraid to challenge me. If you are looking for a company that will provide endless opportunities and encouragement in the development of your career, then WTW is a great company to work for.

Tell us about your role at WTW and a little bit about your current work style?
I am a Compensation Analyst for the Executive Compensation and Advisory Board team in the São Paulo, Brazil office. I provide general assistance to the team in terms of short and long-term incentive survey designs for executives and institutional research within the area. With the pandemic improving, my work style has become hybrid, where I go into the office occasionally but spend most of my time working from home. I consider this style of work to be great because I get to spend more time with my family and less time on transportation. These benefits allow me to increase my productivity and improve my overall wellbeing.
How do you find working within a globally recognized company?
It is a great pleasure to be part of a company of this size. Having the opportunity to learn, socialize and share knowledge with great professionals in the field always motivates to give my best.
How have you developed, whether professionally or individually, during your time at WTW?
I’ve been at WTW since October 2021 and ever since I joined the company, I’ve been able to improve my knowledge and my professional skills. Every day is a different learning experience with my teammates and my professional evolution has positively affected my personal life. My development continues every time I have new experiences with my colleagues and leaders, which means I can learn more every day. WTW provides us with the tools necessary to increase our intellectual capital and here in Brazil, I was able to take a Compensation Practices course that helped in my development as well.
Tell us about a memorable experience you’ve had at WTW.
As soon as I started, I was very warmly welcomed by my colleagues. My arrival was announced during an online meeting with directors and consultants in the area, which made me feel valued and at home right away. This helped me get comfortable with the team so that I could fulfill my work obligations in the best possible way.
What is the best piece of advice you would give a future WTW candidate?
Make the effort and dedication to be part of this company. Here you will be respected, you will have autonomy in the workplace, and you will be part of a company recognized worldwide for the quality of its delivery and its colleagues.

The most important thing I have learned is professional excellence. My colleagues value the quality and results of their work very much, which prompted me to continuously improve the quality of my own work.
One of the most influential training sessions I participated in was the Willis Towers Watson China’s Milestone Learning, which provided me with the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with senior executives face-to-face and helped me understand more about career development opportunities.
What is your proudest achievement since joining Willis Towers Watson?
Before I joined Willis Towers Watson, the application of our benefit technology platform in the China market was very limited. After two years of hard work, we have successfully launched a number of important clients on the platform, and our team has grown.
At the same time, Willis Towers Watson also attaches great importance to encouraging employee innovation. For example, I was fortunate to participate in the Global Horizon Innovation project where I placed in the final top 10. The Global Horizon Innovation project is an all-colleague innovation program designed to generate and test ideas aligned to our company priorities and growth opportunities. All colleagues are encouraged to submit their ideas aligned with one of the chosen themes, and those selected are given the opportunity to prototype and concept test their idea to make a case for further development. Through this project, I experienced the entire process from idea creation to proof of concept, and also had the opportunity to interact with colleagues and leaders from around the world.
How would you describe the culture at Willis Towers Watson?
The company has a great work/life balance, a very collaborative culture and invests in the professional development and personal growth of its employees.
What do you like best about working at Willis Towers Watson?
I like being a part of a working environment where peers and leaders are treated as equals. I also appreciate the ability to have flexible working hours.

I have had many opportunities to work with professional colleagues around the world. In this diverse environment, I’m able to learn from people with different skill sets and from different cultures. The company values teamwork, and our colleagues are very friendly and willing to cooperate. We can communicate and discuss on an equal basis — between peers and leaders.
What is your hope for your career in the future?
I strive to expand the market influence and number of clients on the Willis Towers Watson benefit platform in China. I’m also passionate about innovative technologies and business models in the industry, and I’m always looking for opportunities to work on localized innovation projects.
