Pension Strategy

In today’s competitive business environment it’s never been more important for employers to carefully plan and manage their staff pension schemes. A fundamental strategic issue for all businesses is the shape and scope of their employee benefits, including any pension arrangements you provide your employees.

Key questions to inform your strategy & planning:
  • What are our statutory obligations & constraints?
  • What are the business objectives in relation to staff pension provision?
  • What can the business afford?
  • Where does pension provision sit in the overall remuneration strategy?
  • Do our pension arrangements comply with auto-enrolment requirements?
  • What form of pension arrangements best achieve our objectives?
  • Do we have a legacy defined benefit scheme?
  • What steps are required to implement pension change?
  • What are the operational considerations?
  • How will change be communicated?

We understand that making changes to staff pension schemes and the advent of auto-enrolment means your business strategies need to adapt quickly.

We can help you and your business see things from a fresh perspective. By enabling you to take a step back, together we can effectively review your objectives and work with you to develop and implement a suitable strategy for the future.

Auto – Enrolment

Auto-enrolment legislation states that all UK businesses with at least one employee must now put in place a workplace pension scheme, including minimum defined employer contributions by an assigned staging date. This has been a fundamental and radical change to the UK pensions landscape and best practice guidance recommends advance planning and careful management of workplace schemes now, in order to reduce the impact on your Human Resources, Payroll and Administration departments.

Our team understand that, for many organisations, this legislation brings with it the potential to disrupt existing operations, and the threat of non-compliance leading to fines as imposed by the Pensions Regulator. Our consultants are ready to guide your organisation, whatever your staging date for workplace pensions. We provide expert advice and support for all business types throughout the UK, helping them to decide on how best to comply while investing in the future of their employees today.

Whether you have one employee or 250, these issues may also be significant for organisations that already provide pension arrangements. we can guide and support you on what your requirements are now, regardless of any pre-existing group pension scheme.
