BT wins the most effective strategy to encourage workplace savings award

BT wins the most effective strategy to encourage workplace savings’ award at the Employee Benefits Awards 2012, sponsored and entered by WEALTH at work.

The award acknowledges the dedication and commitment of BT as an employer as they continue to provide their employees the ‘Planning for Retirement’ financial education programme.

Dennis Gissing – Head of People Practices adds “We have rolled out a voluntary programme of financial education for our people aged over 50, to help them begin planning for retirement, be it in the short, medium or longer term. It is important to use a specialist education provider who understands not only BT pensions, but who also have a detailed understanding of the wider retirement market to give employees a rounded view of their key options and areas they need to consider. We have worked with WEALTH at work, for a number of years, and they have helped us, not only to put together and deliver highly engaging seminars, but supported this with an online capability to help BT employees through their decision making process. This complements our own pensions modelling tool by giving specialist information about relevant issues such as state benefits and capital investment.”

Jonathan Watts-Lay, Director, WEALTH at work comments, “We were thrilled that our client – BT won this most prestigious of awards. The financial education programme has been a great success to date and we hope that many more utilise it to ensure they have a more prosperous retirement.”
