Workplace Pension Seminar
Walden Capital is doing their part in supporting local businesses in meeting their obligations under the new Workplace Pensions legislation.
It is no longer enough to simply have a pension scheme in place for your key employees any more. Legislation has been enacted to ensure that every employer has to have a qualifying workplace pension in place, and that all employees are automatically opted in.
Each and every employer will have a 'staging date' - and with many of the largest companies in the land now enrolled it is the turn of smaller, often local businesses; those with between 1 and 500 employees, to ensure that they have a compliant scheme in place by their personalised deadline. There are penalties for non compliance, financial and potentially ultimately criminal sanctions for wilful non compliance so ignoring the changes in the hope that they go away is simply not an option for sensible business owners and managers.
In order to support local businesses who are not sure where to turn Walden Capital are running a FREE one hour seminar on the 12th February at 6 pm for 6.30 pm at the Cross Keys Hotel, Saffron Walden (click for location) to provide an overview of the obligations being imposed, and how best to meet them with the commercial imperative to get it done quickly, efficiently, and with minimal impact on the day to day activities of your business. We will of course be offering refreshments after a hard day, to compensate for your late finish.
Prof. Jon Rushman and John Stirling will be speaking, and answering your questions on what it means to your business, and how best to meet these new regulations head on, with minimum impact on your business, and in a way which helps your employees recognise that this is for their benefit. Research has shown that a good workplace pension is one of the benefits that employees appreciate the most, and a well implemented scheme can be used as a way of engaging with staff, to assist in retaining your key employees, and increasing productivity. It is of course a cost to the business, and we will also look at ways of minimising the up front impact of this, whilst maximising the company benefit.
Walden Capital has many years experience of working with local businesses and understanding what makes businesses 'tick', so you can depend on us to provide targeted, useful, succinct information to enable you to move on with your day.
