Pension Regulator (TPR) to launch auto-enrolment TV ad campaign

This month will see the release of a TV advertising campaign to raise awareness of auto-enrolment among small and micro employers. It arrives before an unprecedented number of businesses approach their staging date.

TPR head of industry liaison Neil Esslemont described the campaign as a first for the watchdog as the regulator prepares an initiative to communicate auto-enrolment to the masses.

Johnson Fleming’s Development Director David Roderick states: “We are expecting this advertising initiative to significantly drive incoming enquiries from SMEs. With an average of 45,000 employers per month due to stage from January 2016 onwards, the industry certainly has a lot to prepare for.

“Companies should be planning ahead, ensuring they implement a solution that is right for their business before the industry experiences an unavoidable strain caused by this huge influx.”

If you require any assistance with auto-enrolment, contact Johnson Fleming on 01527 571300.

Guide: how to change your auto-enrolment support

As we approach the two-year milestone of auto-enrolment, employers have had the opportunity to truly assess the capabilities of their chosen support. They are also now realising that getting to the staging date was the easy part, and that support is required for almost every aspect of the day to day running of their scheme. With the three-year re-enrolment window coinciding for many with the total removal of commission and Active Member Discounts from pension-related products and services, as well as the introduction of the pension charge cap in April 2015, many employers will have no choice but to review their support options. But, what is involved in transitioning your auto-enrolment scheme away from your current support options? This guide from Johnson Fleming aims to outline some of these key areas and provide information and discussion points on what you need to consider.
