This report contains findings from qualitative research carried out in 2009 to explore employers’ likely treatment of different workers under the workplace pension reforms. The research consisted of face-to-face interviews with 62 private sector employees selected to reflect diversity in terms of employer size, industry, pension provision and geographic location.
The research was carried out on behalf of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) by RS Consulting. This research was commissioned as part of a wider programme of research and analysis carried out by the DWP to gather evidence to inform the Government’s pension reforms.
