Podcast: How can employers get to grips with auto-enrolment?

All businesses, by law, now have to enrol eligible employees into a pension scheme and contribute to their pensions unless the employee opts-out. The process, known as “auto-enrolment”, began in 2012 with the largest employers and will end in 2018 with the smallest.

Our panel of pensions experts from business and the Pensions Regulator spell out the steps that employers, many of whom will not have had previous experience of workplace pensions, will need to take to prepare for auto-enrolment into pensions.

Participants include:

  • Damian Stancombe, Head of Employee Benefits, Barnett Waddingham;
  • Jane Wittering, Director of Finance and Human Resources, MJCA;
  • Julie Parker-Welch, Pensions Reward Manager, Marks and Spencer;
  • Neil Esslemont, Head of Industry Liaison, The Pensions Regulator;

Chaired by Jim Bligh, Head of pensions, CBI
