Mears Group prepares for auto-enrolment

Social housing repairs and maintenance provider Mears Group is to launch a super trust pension scheme in preparation for its auto-enrolment staging date of 1 March 2013.

The People’s Pension, provided by B&CE, will be available to the organisation’s 10,000 employees.

Andrew Smith, finance director at Mears Group, said: “We have chosen to partner with B&CE because of the portability of The People’s Pension, which will benefit our employees enormously who work as part of a transient workforce.”
