Platforum wants your views on corporate platforms

Fill in four-minute questionnaire for a chance to win a case of Berry Bros wine.

Lack of provision, pensions reform, RDR and developments in technology have all contributed to the recent focus on workplace savings. Corporate platforms continue to be developed to support employers, employees and their advisers.

Each platform is different but the common theme is giving employees online access to information and education tools plus the option to contribute towards a pension with one or more additional savings vehicles.
