Auto-enrolment breakfast briefing – 18 May, Boldon

Join us, Thursday 18 May, for a one hour auto-enrolment breakfast briefing aimed at owners of  small businesses who are looking for clear, practical advice, delivered by experts.

This event is tailored to those who wish to understand more about the auto-enrolment process; what it means to your business, how to most effectively engage your staff and the most recent advice on pensions, potential work place issues and payroll.

The briefing will be of particular interest to businesses which do not yet have an auto-enrolment pension scheme in place, as well as those which already have a scheme and are interested in gaining a broader appreciation of their legal obligations and the options that exist to improve their systems.
