As an employer you are legally required to enrol eligible staff into a workplace pension scheme and make contributions towards it. You will also have to communicate with staff about which scheme you automatically enrol them into. The automatic enrolment web pages are designed to give you guidance on automatic enrolment and its processes.
NHS Employers continues to work with stakeholders to ensure that NHS organisations are aware of their responsibilities, and have access to the necessary tools and information to meet their compliance duties for automatic enrolment.
Automatic enrolment is not just a payroll and pensions responsibility. Greater recognition of the challenges posed by the compliance duties and the resources required locally to deliver them, is required of organisational boards, alongside HR and finance leads.
Organisations also have duty to carry out automatic re-enrolment every three years to enrol their staff who are not already in a pension scheme.

2. Assess worker status
3. Procurement and choosing your alternative pension provider
4. Deciding whether to alter the date you stage

10.Register with The Pensions Regulator and keep records.
Pensions is a complex subject and we encourage employers to work in partnership with local staff side organisations to ensure that information is clearly communicated and that staff understand the full implications of the new automatic enrolment system.
We believe that a collaborative approach will help staff to make informed decisions about these valuable pension benefits. Early discussions with your local staff representatives will enable effective planning to deliver this program.
