This report presents the findings from a qualitative research project carried out by consultants RS Consulting for the Pensions Client Directorate (PCD). The research was undertaken to improve understanding of the possible impact of the proposed workplace pension reform regulations on medium and small employers.
The research consulted with 66 private sector businesses of up to 500 employees and consisted of ten focus groups and 11 individual depth interviews. The research looked at general attitudes toward the reforms and some of the more detailed aspects of the proposed regulations.
