Running a business today takes a great deal of hard work and commitment. EQ provides small and medium sized businesses with a range of planning services. We can help you to set up your workplace pension scheme to comply with your auto-enrolment duties, help you choose and implement the right set of employee benefits, and work with you to ensure your employees value the range of benefits you offer.
We work with employers to design employee benefit packages that are relevant to the business, while being fully understood and valued by the recipients.
If you are looking for advice on designing, reviewing or implementing your employee benefit programme, our specialist consultants can help you with the following:
- Employee benefit strategy – align employee expectations with business objectives
- Affordable solutions – for employee benefit scheme design
- Employee communications – to ensure that all employees have the information they need to make key financial decisions, especially when they want to retire
- Financial guidance and advice – available for all employees through seminars and one-to-one meetings.
We can audit your existing arrangements from core pension and insurance policies to the whole range of additional benefits that are available, to assess both cost and effectiveness of your package.
The new auto-enrolment rules require all employers to automatically enrol some or all members of their workforce (depending on age and salary level) into a pension scheme which meets certain minimum standards.
We can help your business transition to the new auto-enrolment regime. Our service covers an audit of your existing pension scheme; administrative support, employee communication requirements and guidance for your staff.
