Auto-Enrolment Services

From 2012, new pensions legislation came into effect, which will have an impact on every business in the UK – even if you have only one employee. In short, your business needs to have a pension scheme in place that meets with certain minimum standards and that certain types of employee can be automatically enrolled into.

There are some additional requirements in terms of registering with the Pensions Regulator, adequately communicating the pension scheme to all staff and some ongoing compliance & record-keeping too.

We work with businesses to help them not only comply with the legislation but also design a pension scheme that is ideal for the long term growth of their business and that will attract and retain high quality staff.


“I had no real understanding of the new auto-enrolment pension arrangements so having HR Heroes on hand to manage the entire process was a life saver.”
