Pension Change – Nationwide Building Society Case Study

Presented by

Lesley Alexander, PMI - Ian Baines, Nationwide - Jonathan Watts-Lay, WEALTH at work

About this talk

We are pleased to invite you to a webinar on ‘Pension Change: a case study in creating positive member engagement during a Defined Benefit pension scheme closure’. DB schemes are under increasing pressure to manage their costs and liabilities and the number of schemes considering their options are growing. A major challenge many will face is communicating changes to members who already have little contact with their pension scheme and limited understanding of how their benefits are provided. This timely case study shows how one DB scheme successfully achieved their goals, which should appeal to professional trustees, advisers and employers alike. Ian Baines, Head of Pensions at Nationwide Building Society, will provide the background and an overview of the decision making process from an employer’s perspective. This will cover the successes and challenges in maintaining positive engagement and relations during a highly emotive process affecting 5,000 active scheme members. Jonathan Watts-Lay, Director, WEALTH at work, will look at the employee experience including the support employees were offered and the lessons learned from this and other similar projects. The session will then be opened to the audience for a live Q&A session. Attending the webinar will contribute 60 minutes to your CPD accreditation.
