URUGUAY - Watson Wyatt Worldwide has opened a benefits consultancy research centre in Latin America.
The centre, located in Montevideo, will conduct research to support Watson Wyatt’s human capital consulting services for large employers throughout the region and the world, the firm said.
“While sound human capital practices are universal, local customs and policies vary greatly from region to region and country to country,” said Peter Mills, Watson Wyatt regional manager for Latin American and the Caribbean.
“Having research on the ground in Latin America will allow Watson Wyatt to help our clients create and implement evidence-based solutions throughout the region.”
The new research centre is Watson Wyatt’s sixth major research centre and will initially focus on research relating to employee benefits, executive rewards, pension risk and benefits communication.
Mirko Cardinale, a Watson Wyatt economist, will manage the centre.
