The majority of employers in the UK have still not talked to their employees about auto-enrolment and what it might mean for both parties.
A survey of payroll, HR, accounting and finance professionals from the Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) found as many as three-quarters of employers have not broached the subject, despite its October start date.
However, 61 per cent of companies have decided on where the responsibility for auto-enrolment, or Workplace Pension Reforms, will lie. For 42 per cent of firms it will fall to admin staff in payroll departments, while a quarter will allocate it to HR departments.
A similar number will have all payroll, HR and finance departments working together, while nine per cent will fall to just finance staff.
Commenting on the findings, Helen Hargreaves, senior policy and research officer at the CIPP, said: "It is vital that businesses know when they will be required to automatically enrol their employees, how this will affect them financially, and who is going to be responsible for ensuring that all their obligations as an employer are met."
