Policy News Journal - 2014-15

The CIPP is working with a number of credit unions and other similar organisations to see how employees can not only obtain lower cost loans but also help them save for the short and medium term. The pension reforms, for example automatic enrolment, will help employees save for their retirement but often people have other projects they require savings for now. Research shows that when savings or deductions are made from payroll, employees find it much easier to manage their budgets; this is where the payroll industry can help. To aid the CIPP’s understanding, the policy team would like to hear from anyone who currently operates a payroll saving scheme, or is considering one, whether a credit union, other body or even in-house, to obtain information about the pros and cons for payroll.

Please can you spare 10 minutes of your time to complete this short survey . Closing date for responses is 30 June 2014.

The CIPP and Payroll World thank you for your time in completing this survey . The survey will close on 18 August 2014. Only employers/providers who have staged or have clients that have staged should complete this survey .
