We want to inspire each member so that they make active choices and decisions around their own savings and later life plans, whilst appreciating the impact of each of these on their goals and the benefits that their employer also offers.
Any communication needs to target the agreed key messages, to the right members, at the right time. This can be helped by our online pension analytical tool (GEM) by segmenting the workforce into agreed cohorts.
We believe in a staged approach to delivering engagement services:
“Thank you for the great series of presentations. Feedback suggests that our staff found them useful and worthwhile. They now have an appreciation of the value of the contribution that we make to their pension fund and of course, an improved understanding of the importance of planning for retirement.”Head of Member Services
We recognise that every client is unique and our aim is to influence the right employee behaviour to meet each company’s objective. Our creative agency, DrumRoll, changes the way employers communicate and engage with their workforce. Using techniques more familiar in the retail ‘buy’ world, alongside our established analytical and consultancy services, DrumRoll helps companies build a successful approach to workforce engagement.
Informed members make informed decisions - but effective engagement doesn’t just happen, it needs a well-defined strategy with clear understanding of where schemes and members are now, where they want to be, and the tools to help them get there.
