Over the last number of years there has been a global shift from Defined Benefit (DB) to Defined Contribution (DC) pensions. The DC market is firmly established for the future. This shift requires a new focus. Engagement, education and retirement outcomes are critically linked to a successful pension arrangement.

In order for employees to engage in retirement savings; not only do they need to understand the level of contributions being made, they need to be educated about the investment choices available to them within the scheme and the potential outcomes at retirement. Simplifying the complex pension literature in the market to focus on the important aspects of retirement planning and linking to broader financial plans is key to unlocking engagement levels.

At Aon Employee Benefits, our solutions are not only aimed at simplifying pensions for employees, but also for our clients. We will work in partnership with you, helping you to achieve higher employee engagement and appreciation levels.
