The article presents the statement issued by Stephen Haddrill, the new chairman of the Institute for Employment Studies (IES), on pensions. British Employers should wake up to the need to provide good pensions for staff now, rather than wait for the government's plans to kick in, said Haddrill. He added that firms should consider implementing schemes that at least match the government's planned National Pensions Savings Scheme (NPSS) before it comes into force in 2012.
