Majority of staff active pension scheme members

Some 43% of respondents say 90% or more of their workforce are active pension scheme members, according to the Employee Benefits/Close Brothers Pensions research 2014.

The research, which surveyed 216 respondents in September 2014, also found that approximately a quarter (24%) say between 80% and 89% of their workforce are active members of their organisationā€™s pension scheme(s).

Just 5% of respondents say this is the case for less than 20% of their workforce.

Such high member engagement levels suggest thatĀ auto-enrolment has met its original aims of getting more of the UKā€™s workforce saving for retirement.
