Auto Enrolment & your workforce

By now, you have probably seen the Department of Work and Pensions’ advertisements for Auto Enrolment, including the television commercial featuring Nick Hewer and Theo Paptitis from the BBC’s ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘Dragons Den’ respectively.

But what exactly is Auto Enrolment and why is it happening? A one stop shop for AutoEnrolment.

Auto Enrolment: What is it?

“Millions of people are not saving enough to have the income

they are likely to want in retirement. Life expectancy in the

UK is increasing and, at the same time, people are saving less

into pensions. We need to address these challenges.”

Department for Work and Pensions


Since October 2012, employers must automatically

enrol workers into a workplace pension.

Auto Enrolment has been introduced to help and

encourage people to save more for their retirement.

Auto Enrolment: A response to demographic change

All employers are required to automatically enroll their employees into a workplace pension scheme if they meet the eligibility criteria; this is known as Pension Auto Enrolment. It focuses on encouraging employees to save and places a new responsibility on employers to contribute towards and maintain their employees’ pensions. A Government initiative in response to longer life expectancy, it has transformed traditional saving methods for retirement.

Auto Enrolment: Why is it happening?

“This is the start of the biggest shake up in the pensions system in a generation – if we don’t act now tomorrows pensioners could find themselves poorer in later life”

Our society is getting older

In 1901 there were 10 people working for every pensioner in the UK. In 2010 there were only 3 people working for every pensioner. By 2050 it is expected that this will change to just 2 workers. This decrease in the ratio of people working to pensioners has made the government find ways of reducing the dependency on the state pension. Auto enrolment is a quick way to get more of the working population to start saving for their retirement.
