Rethink HR

In this edition of HR Clicks, we explore the key wellbeing questions every employee should ask as they approach retirement, launch our DC Pension and Financial Wellbeing Member Survey 2018 and examine how gamified assessment could improve your employee selection process.

Key wellbeing questions every employee should ask as they approach retirement
Over the last decade, changes in legislation and workplace practice have combined to turn retirement from a sudden, overnight leap into a slower, more gradual journey. Getting the direction of that journey right requires careful planning from both employees and employers.

DC Pension and Financial Wellbeing Member Survey 2018
This year, we have extended our annual DC research beyond employees' pensions and examined their current financial health as well. What we have found is compelling. Overall, employees are optimistic about their finances, but their perceptions and reality often do not match up. The full survey will be available later this month; in the meantime, you can download a copy of the survey summary.

DC Pension and Financial Wellbeing Member Survey podcast
Listen to the first in our latest series of podcasts. In this edition, Steven Leigh and Victoria Panormo discuss the survey and ask whether UK employees' dreams match up to the reality of their situation.

Video – How do members really feel?
In our new series of short videos, we ask real members how they feel about planning for retirement. In the first we ask them: what it is like to be saving for retirement today?

Refocusing what 'risk' means for DC savers
We expect DC pension schemes to continue to develop and enhance the investment options that they offer to members. Refocusing what 'risk' means for DC savers should be at the heart of this. Our new whitepaper looks into this topic.

Using elements of gamification to enhance your selection strategy
Our paper explores the different game-related options available to employers, examines the latest research on gamification, and shares seven practical steps to help you choose and implement the right solution.

Benchmarking insights for the legal sector
