There’s nothing very ordinary about Thomsons Online Benefits. Our passionate PINK culture, benefits expertise, collaborative partner ecosystem and our innovative benefits technology are as extraordinary as our people.
Thomsons started life in 1999 when co-founders Michael Whitfield and Chris Bruce wrote their first business plan. They had one clear aim - to disrupt and innovate the benefits market.
From introducing the market’s first paperless and signature-free pensions enrolment to the launch of our benefits platform - Darwin™ - we have continued to push the boundaries of innovation.
By 2010, our turnover exceeded £20m, we had over 200 employees and Darwin was live in more than 20 countries. In January 2013 Boston-based ABRY Partners announced a private equity deal valuing the company at almost £100m and in June 2015 we fully transitioned to a SaaS benefits technology provider.
Today, with over 100 industry awards under our belt and more than one million employees using Darwin globally in over 80 countries and 24 languages worldwide, we continue to innovate the benefits market and turn the world PINK as we go.
Thomsons is now firmly established as a global company and Darwin is considered the benefits management solution of choice. We have offices in the UK, Singapore, Romania and the US.
We remain passionately committed to going the extra mile for our clients, partners and people, with our brand lighting and guiding us down the path of honesty, integrity and innovation.
That is the Thomsons’ brand commitment and we look forward to you joining us on the next stage of this exciting journey.
PINK is the natural combination of red, violet and white. PINK is about the need for action - the passion of red, the deepness and sophistication of violet and the insight and openness of white. PINK reflects the strength, passion, energy and warmth of our people.
PINK is Thomsons – Thomsons is PINK!
