UK - Two senior investment consultants at Watson Wyatt are to take sabbatical leave later this year.
Iain Woods, who currently heads the London investment team, is taking three months off from May to pursue his passion for long-distance walking in the UK and Europe.
And Jane Welsh plans to take a six-month break from August with her young family.
The sabbaticals are part of an ongoing programme at Watson Wyatt.
European head of investment consulting Nick Watts said: “Both Iain and Jane have been unstinting in their work for the firm and have been at the heart of many positive developments in the investment practice during the past 10 years.
“They have certainly earned their sabbatical leave and I look forward to welcoming them back refreshed and rested on their return.”
