London, UK, 6th February 2013 - Thomsons Online Benefits are celebrating winning “Corporate Adviser of the Year” and “Best Member Communication Strategy” at the 2013 Corporate Adviser awards.
Now in their sixth year, the Corporate Adviser Awards 2013 celebrate those advisers that have brought real innovation to the field of pensions and employee benefits.
Michael Whitfield, CEO of Thomsons commented: “Hot on the heels of last week’s news about our investment, these awards cement a phenomenal start to 2013 for Thomsons. Businesses are discovering right now that they need help more than ever to understand and implement auto-enrolment and engage their employees in the process, and Thomsons are perfectly positioned to support them. Our ethos of continually engaging employees with their employee benefit packages, means that they value them more, understand them better and, as a result, are more likely to invest, with a higher pension payment being the outcome.”
Last week Thomsons Online Benefits announced a significant US investment, from ABRY Partners, a tech savvy investor based in Boston valuing the business at approaching £100 million. The deal will help Thomsons to significantly expand both its’ UK presence and global footprint, and to fund job creation.
