G1 Group has appointed a pensions consultancy to help prepare for its auto-enrolment staging date of August 2013.

The Scottish leisure operator, which employs 1,800 staff in bars, clubs and restaurants, will receive a full financial analysis of its pension costs and advice regarding the selection of a suitable pension provider from JLT Benefit Solutions (JLT).

G1 Group will also use JLT’s BenPal technology, which will allow employees to manage all their benefits on a single online system.

David McDowell, operations director at G1 Group, said: “We see auto-enrolment as an opportunity, an additional means by which we can motivate and engage with our employees as we work out how best to implement a universal pension scheme for the benefit of everyone.

“With our diverse workforce, effective staff communication, particularly electronic communications, are essential, and we feel that JLT’s online system has the capability of offering this.”
