"Auto-enrolment – a practical guide" outlines the key issues for pension schemes

Delegated Services - Aon Hewitt
It's vital that organisations realise that auto-enrolment is not just a concern for pension managers

Aon Hewitt, the global human resource consulting and outsourcing business of Aon Corporation has released its guide to auto-enrolment for pension schemes. "Auto-enrolment - a practical guide" gives an overview of the changes which take place from October 2012 and offers advice on what schemes need to be doing.

John Foster, benefits consultant at Aon Hewitt, said:
"The Chancellor has announced that there will be more time for smaller employers to comply with the New Employer Duties. However, for the UK’s largest employees, there is no time to waste. With employers who have more than 3000 employees having to comply by mid 2013, and increasing numbers having to follow suit at each successive month, the scale of the challenge facing the UK's businesses is becoming more apparent.

"It's vital that organisations realise that auto-enrolment is not just a concern for pension managers – the changes that need to be made encompass wider benefits, payroll, systems, HR and many other areas. The project planning required means that organisations need to start now – if they haven't already – to ensure that they are ready by their deadline. We hope that our guide to the changes will help everyone with the task ahead."
