Why should you attend?

With the rise of 'semi-retirement' and part-time working, employers are being left with an ageing workforce who are financially incapable of leaving the working world.

Yet almost half of employers* have no ageing workforce strategy in place.

To make matters worse, retirement options are becoming increasingly complex, which means financial education is more important than ever, yet 57% of employers simply do not offer any form of financial education*.

Our experts will be on hand to answer important questions and will help you understand:

  • The benefits of financial education and how to deliver a successful programme
  • All about the latest retirement options – and how to provide for your employees
  • How to communicate them effectively to your employees
  • Effective strategies for managing the rise in ‘semi-retirement’
  • How to bring it altogether and deliver workplace savings your employees (and your boss) will thank you for
  • Who should attend?

    Anyone responsible for their workplace pension decisions.

    This seminar will provide useful information and tips to help you make better business decisions - it is not personal advice. Tax and pension rules are subject to change.

    This session is designed for companies with more than 50 employees and annual pension contributions of more than £500,000.

    Why are we doing this? It's simple. First, we think the industry needs straightforward information. Second, it's our way of introducing our services to you. But don't worry; it really is a briefing session, not a pitch in disguise.

    After all, our reputation is built on providing the best information – to both employers and employees.
