This survey has collected information on the current nature and extent of pension provision among private sector organisations. It is the tenth in the series. It is the first Department for Work and Pensions survey to be undertaken since the implementation of automatic enrolment to workplace pensions. The survey looks at:

  • the early impacts of automatic enrolment
  • the intentions and levels of awareness among employers who are not yet directly affected by automatic enrolment

The DWP will use the findings to inform the evaluation of the workplace pension reforms and ongoing development of automatic enrolment policy.
