Pension Scrooges

Bah humbug! Britain’s pension managers
are a miserable bunch denouncing Christmas parties as too boring, too
forced and too lengthy.

they go on too long and 37 per cent claiming that they are disruptive.

cheer to distract them from the woes of the current pension crisis.

colleagues, photo-copying your backside and telling the boss where to go?
