Towers Watson, £2.4bn turn over and 14,000 employees worldwide backs ‘Crossrail for Bikes’

TWmediumTowers Watson Limited is a global professional services company with 14,000 employees around the world. Founded in the UK in 1878, Towers Watson help organizations improve performance through effective people, risk and financial management and are based in High Holborn.

Mark Williams, Senior Consultant & UK Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, explained why CrossRail for Bikes means so much to the business:

‘ Like many businesses in London, a growing number of our employees cycle to work. An even larger proportion of our team would cycle to the office if they felt comfortable and safe on the roads.

We value their safety and we want to promote active lifestyles for all our employees. We support their freedom to choose how they get to work. We also note strong evidence that more cycling increases spending in local retail businesses and lowers air pollution levels.

The proposed north–south and east–west routes will help us attract and retain the employees our business needs to continue to thrive. They will also make London a more attractive city in which to build and run our business.

‘Crossrail for Bikes’ is, on balance, great for our business and for London. Please make sure these plans are delivered, without delay.’
