BMS World Mission awarded Pension Quality Mark

BMS World Mission has been awarded a Pension Quality Mark (PQM) from the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF) for offering its staff around the world a high-quality defined contribution (DC) pension.

The charity won the accolade for providing good employer-funded contribution rates, which are clearly communicated to employees.

David Locke, director for finance and corporate services, and in charge of pensions at BMS World Mission, said: “BMS World Mission is committed to providing long-term, sustainable and ethical pension plans, and the Pension Quality Mark further underlines the quality of our care for current and prospective staff both in the UK and around the world.

“Our pension scheme remains a vital component in our care package to retain and look after the very best people.”

Joanne Segars, chief executive of the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF), added: “We are very pleased that BMS has received this important recognition.

“Here is a charity that not only cares about the communities across the globe it serves, but also about securing a good retirement for its staff.

“Every employee should have access to a good quality pension, irrespective of their profession. More employers should follow in the footsteps of BMS by providing their employees with strong workplace pensions.”
