Focus groups for levels 1 -3 staff: CRSP pension scheme

January 9th, 2024

The university has arranged a number of focus groups for members and eligible members of the CRSP pension scheme (all staff at levels 1 – 3) to share their thoughts and views on the scheme.

Workplace pensions are a valuable way for you to save for your future. These are arranged through your employer and require you to pay in a percentage of your salary and your employer then also pays in a percentage too.  At UoN we encourage staff to take advantage of this benefit to help prepare for the future.

We offer a number of pensions determined by your job level. For levels 1-3 we offer the Contributory Retirement Savings Plan (CRSP) through Legal and General.

We want to understand your experience of the CRSP pension scheme, if you are currently paying into the scheme and if you don’t currently pay into the scheme, why?

This feedback will help us to understand what employees value in a pension scheme to ensure that the CRSP pension scheme is attractive to our employees.

We would like to hear from a broad range of staff – both those in our current pension schemes and those not currently paying in, from all departments and job families.

You do not need to know anything about pensions to attend this session.  We are interested in learning whether CRSP is working for you and if not, how it could be improved.

The focus groups will be small group discussions with up to 25 people in a room, led by Isio, our pension advisors.
