A monster of a campaign to grab your attention

21 January 2016

You may have noticed a new character on your TV screens who has been introduced to help remind employers that the law has changed and that they have new workplace pensions duties.

‘Workie’, the friendly, furry giant was introduced to us in October 2015 and comes with a serious message: it’s time for small and micro employers to act. This big, colourful character will be seen visiting people in all sorts of work environments over the coming months, asking employers not to ignore the workplace pension.

Alongside the advertising campaign The Pensions Regulator has launched a new online step by step guide. The guide is designed to meet the needs of employers who may not have pensions experience including those with just one or two staff. It uses everyday language, is interactive and contains videos and infographics so that employers can easily understand what they will need to do.

The step by step guide also has a duties checker and all employers are urged to input their details so that they can receive information tailored for them.
