This report presents findings of a quantitative survey carried out in 2009 to explore employer’s attitudes and likely reactions to the workplace pension reforms. It involved telephone interviews with 2,550 private sector employers across Great Britain, selected to reflect diversity in terms of employer’s size, current level of provision and likely future contribution levels. The research was carried out by TNS-BMRB and NIESR on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions.
The study was commissioned as part of a programme of research and analysis to inform policy development, implementation and estimation of the likely impacts of the workplace pension reforms.
