Taylor Wimpey has appointed Hymans Robertson as third-party administrator of its pension scheme after an open tender.
The Taylor Wimpey Pension Scheme has around 18,000 members and will become Hymans Robertson's largest administration client to date.
The scheme had previously been administered by Aon Hewitt and the open tender took six months.
Taylor Wimpey is a FTSE 100 company and one of the nation's largest housebuilders, operating from 24 regional offices across England, Scotland and Wales with over 4,000 employees and more than 11,000 contractors.
Taylor Wimpey head of reward Anthony Moriarty said: "We were particularly impressed by Hymans Robertson's administration services and felt especially reassured by its dedication to providing an excellent member experience which came through clearly throughout the tender process.
"As we have gone live, our initial impressions of Hyman's professionalism and openness have been reinforced. It has demonstrated that it is building a great member experience from day one."
