Auto enrolment

Auto enrolment is a new legislative requirement for every employer to automatically enrol all eligible employees into a qualifying pension scheme. It is part of a Government initative to tackle the large number of the working population in the UK that are not saving enough for retirement or taking advantage of private pension schemes that may be on offer.

In general, we are all living longer and have an increasing proportion of people of retirement age compared to those of working age. Compass Group in the UK, along with every other UK employer, has a statutory obligation to enrol its eligible employees into an appropriate pension scheme.
