Report shows manufacturers embracing employment of older workers
Report shows manufacturers embracing employment of older workers
Engineering Employers Federation (EEF)
20 Apr 2008 United Kingdom Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies), Equality

Britain ’s manufacturers are adopting an increasingly positive attitude towards employing older workers in order to address the challenges posed by continued skills shortages and an ageing population, according to a report published today by EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation. The report "An Ageing Workforce - How are manufacturers preparing?" shows that, in contrast to the popular view, manufacturers believe older workers to be a valuable part of their workforce, more productive and less likely to be absent than their younger counterparts. The more physical nature of manufacturing employment is also felt to be no impediment to the employment of older workers.

EEF report calls for radical overhaul of pensions system
Engineering Employers Federation (EEF)
31 Aug 2005 United Kingdom State Pensions, Pension Reform, Pensioners & Retirement, Industry Bodies (excl. Regulatory Bodies), Funding and Minimum Funding Requirement
EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation has called for a radical overhaul of the UK’s pensions system by 2015 with a new structure that will involve Government, employers and employees taking responsibility for funding future pension provision. The proposals are contained in a comprehensive report submitted to Adair Turner’s Pensions Commission. They comprise three key features:
  • an enhanced basic state pension
  • minimum compulsory contributions by both employers and employees
  • a third tier that will release private sector provision from burdensome regulation and encourage additional voluntary contributions.

Reforming occupational pensions
Initial reaction to the government's proposals
Engineering Employers Federation (EEF)
Jun 2003 United Kingdom Pension Reform
The EEF has given a guarded welcome to some of the proposals announced today for reforming occupational pensions. However, it remains concerned at the continued absence of a clear implementation timetable, particularly for replacing the Minimum Funding Requirement (MFR). It also believes companies may face adverse unintended consequences and extra costs and will only be able to judge the final implications once full details of the government' s proposals are published.

Pensions tax simplification is necessary but not sufficient
A response to the Treasury/Inland Revenue consultation document
Engineering Employers Federation (EEF)
Apr 2003 United Kingdom Taxation
According to the researcher, the government's proposals for simplifying the taxation of pensions are necessary to encourage higher levels of saving for retirement but are not, by themselves, sufficient to make a real impact. The researcher says that to encourage higher levels of pension provision, the government must go further and faster, as additional incentives for both employers and employees are required.
