Getting a Grip: The Route to Reform of Public Sector Pensions
Confederation of British Industry (CBI)
6 Apr 2010 United Kingdom Surpluses and Deficits, Scheme Issues & Trends, Scheme Design (inc. DB & DC), Pension Reform, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
Pensions in the public sector must shift from unsustainable final salary models to a more affordable system, if a trillion pound burden on the taxpayer is to be contained. This is according to a new research report by the CBI entitled "Getting a grip: the route to reform of public sector pensions" which claims that the financial 'black hole' for unfunded public sector pensions is £10bn each year and sets out some of the key issues regarding pension costs that the next Government should consider.

Public sector needs to reform pay and reward
Public sector needs to reform pay and reward
Confederation of British Industry (CBI)
11 Dec 2006 United Kingdom Surpluses and Deficits, Pension Reform, Occupations/Industry Sectors, Investment - General, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies)
Major changes to pay and rewards systems in the public sector are necessary to get the most out of staff and achieve a step change in service delivery, according to a new CBI report. The study draws attention to the cost of public sector pensions and says this must be brought under control in the longer term and better aligned with private sector provision, so that the taxpayer is not saddled with excessive costs. Public sector liabilities are now thought to lie anywhere between £530 million and £1 billion.

Citizens Pension for All not the answer to Pensions Crisis
Submission to the Turner Review
Confederation of British Industry (CBI)
Feb 2005
Publishing its submission to the Turner review on the pensions crisis, the employers' organisation is calling on the government to commit now to reform of the state pension system but says it is wrong to think a much higher pension, paid to all regardless of working history, is a more realistic solution. The CBI says the real challenge is to deliver a simpler system that will support those on below average earnings who are not able to save enough for their own retirement.

Focus on investment
The impact of pension deficits
Confederation of British Industry (CBI)
Jul 2003 United Kingdom Scheme Issues & Trends, Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
This report tries to quantify the economic impact of a growing pensions deficit. It says the need for extra contributions will hit profits and hamper company attempts to invest for the expected economic upswing. It conservatively estimates that extra company pension payments will total 8bn in 2003, 12bn in 2004 and 16bn in 2005. This would mean total annual contributions would have doubled in just four years to 43bn.

Plan to give boost to Pension Saving
Response to the Pensions Green Paper
Confederation of British Industry (CBI)
May 2003 United Kingdom Pension Reform
The CBI has urged the Government to embark on a multi-million pound drive to help small firms offer pensions, boosting retirement saving for millions of workers. In its response to the Pensions Green Paper, the employers' organisation warns that the Government will not solve the current crisis without making pensions more affordable to small firms. It points out that only a fifth of firms with 50 to 100 staff are able to offer a scheme. This compares with 80% of firms with more than 1000 staff.

Proposals to strengthen Corporate Governance
Submission to the Financial Reporting Council on the Higgs proposals
Confederation of British Industry (CBI)
Apr 2003 United Kingdom Corporate Governance
The CBI has launched a fresh bid to ensure Derek Higgs' proposals on corporate governance do not have "damaging unintended consequences" by publishing proposals that would strengthen corporate governance as Higgs intended, but avoid creating a code of practice that is overly prescriptive and a threat to boardroom unity.
