DOD’s blog: how auto-enrolment strategies are shaping up

This week Employee Benefits published a major piece of research into what employers have done with their auto-enrolment strategies to date.

The Employee Benefits/Capita Pensions Research 2013 drew responses from 370 employers, 31% of which have gone through auto-enrolment.
