NAPF launches free pensions service for employers

The National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) has launched an information service to support HR professionals directly involved with their organisation’s pension scheme.

The service, which is free for the first year, will provide information on a range of issues, including the impact of personal accounts and auto-enrolment, remuneration policy and recruitment strategies.

Employers who sign up will be able to access a website where they can take part in online polls, surveys and a discussion forum. They will also receive quarterly newsletters and will be able to attend sessions held by pensions professionals. Organisations do not have to belong to the NAPF to sign up for the service.

Joanne Segars, chief executive of the NAPF, said: “Workplace pensions issues have never been more complex and will be come even more so in the next few years with the introduction of personal accounts and auto-enrolment. We know that HR managers are dealing with pension issues more than ever before. We have developed the HR PensionsConnection service to help HR professionals meet the growing challenge of dealing with today’s workplace pensions.”
