Auto-enrolment: the journey has just begun

Almost no government research was published over the election period and summer recess, but now the logjam has finally been broken with a flurry of reports.

As City AM reported today, our latest research for DWP has shown that small and micro-employers are really embracing auto-enrolment.

We explored the experiences and views of 70 small and micro employers and their workers. And we also look at how employees might react to the government’s planned increases to the minimum contribution levels.

Just another average (behavioural economic-ed up) day…

Over the past six months I have been on a mission to build upon my expertise in Behavioural Economics (BE). It struck me the other day, that as well as me getting to grips with BE, BE was most definitely getting to grips with me! In fact, once you start to think about the principles of BE, you notice them popping up everywhere. It’s like a BE radar that you can’t seem to turn off. Here, for example, are some little incidences of BE in just one day last week.
