Speaking to staff about the workplace pension can sometimes be a challenge for businesses, but many employees are still coming to their employers with questions about how the scheme works and what it means for them.
The Department for Work and Pensions is keen to help employers speak to their staff about pensions, and has created some online guidance for employees here:
As well as this, content has been recently created in partnership with Channel 4’s Gogglebox that could help businesses start a positive conversation. The popular and familiar Gogglebox families get comfy on their sofas and chat about pensions and why saving for the future is so important.
There is also a free toolkit available for small businesses that provides lots of information about how to talk to staff about pensions. It can be downloaded or a printed pack ordered by calling 01233 664770.
