We’re proud to celebrate our 10th anniversary with you. More than 900,000 employers use Nest today and you’ve been at the heart of our transformation from a start-up into one of the UK’s biggest pension schemes.
To show our commitment to making Nest easy to use, we’ve marked this milestone by putting together 10 tips for you. Some will save you time on monthly processes and others will help you support your workers on their savings journey.
1. Get your workers off to a good start
Show you’re an employer that cares and help your new workers appreciate the great pension scheme you provide by telling them all about it. Use the welcome presentation, joining email template and contract insert in our communication toolkit to get the message across.
2. Talk to all your staff in the right way
Your employees trust you and expect you to talk to them about their pension savings. We’ve done the research and know what works, and what doesn’t, when it comes to communicating about pensions. Watch our short videos and find your voice.
3. Avoid late payment notifications
Over the last decade we’ve listened to employers like you to understand your common queries and put the right support in place. That’s why we made this short video and guidance that helps you understand, resolve and reduce your late payment notifications.
4. Save time on zero contributions
From time to time one of your employees might not make a contribution in a certain month. To make it quick and easy for you to tell us, we put together this collection of help centre articles that explain the process.
5. Discover our improvements and market insights
In the past ten years we’ve kept innovating for you – whether that’s building the first fully automated online pension admin tool or making it easier to filter your Nest mailbox. Read about our latest improvements and industry updates on Nest Views.
6. Help your workers in later life
Employees can feel vulnerable and confused as they approach retirement and may look to you for support. Use the material in our toolkit to help explain their retirement options with Nest, and where they can go for trusted guidance.
7. Know that we’re here at retirement too
We’re committed to helping your employees enjoy a better retirement. Our short article explains the support we’ve put in place and new products we’ve created, like the Nest Guided Retirement Fund which gives eligible employees freedom and flexibility when accessing their savings.
