What does it mean in practice?
Our latest survey of 1,180 HR professionals found pensions had regained its perennial top spot in the league table of employee benefits from flexible working which, understandably, was perceived as the most valuable benefit which could be offered to employees when the last survey took place in the depths of the pandemic in summer 2020.
We know most people value pensions but what this latest research tells us is, equally, employers don’t have the tools to reveal how important they really are. More than half (51 per cent) don’t offer anything else apart from the actual pension. And 97 per cent would if it were free.
Which is why our second free HR webinar is devoted to the growing issue of how organisations look out for their older employees planning to retire. What can they sensibly do to help. We will look at online tools and resources which represent a big step forward with no big bill attached.
