Benefits and allowances survey 2013: defined-contribution schemes dominate workplace pensions

XpertHR's 2013 survey of benefits and allowances looks at the ever-changing face of UK pensions. The introduction of auto-enrolment has added another dimension to this benefit, necessitating that some companies make alterations to their existing pension plans or adopt new schemes.
