We’re at the Earnie Customer Conference

Today the IRIS team are down at Chesford Grange for the second Earnie Customer Conference and the key focus of the event is auto enrolment and how best to prepare.

The morning started with Mark Paraskeva, CEO of IRIS SME Division welcoming the delegates and giving an update on the latest IRIS and Earnie developments.

A representative from The Pensions Regulator was next to take to the stage, explaining auto enrolment in more detail and giving some great advice on the steps you need to take to ensure your business is prepared. One of the key tips given was to find out your staging date as soon as possible, so you can have enough time to prepare and won’t be caught out by leaving it too late.

After a short coffee break we moved on to NEST, who gave a brilliant talk on how pensions and payroll need to collaborate to ensure auto enrolment success. They also gave a summary of their solution and how they can help businesses with their auto enrolment duties.

Now our delegates are getting an overview of the IRIS auto enrolment solution and how we can help you and your business prepare for your staging date.

After lunch there is going to be an IRIS OpenPayslips update, before another guest speaker, this time from CIPP (Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals) focussing on salary sacrifice.

The final part of the day is our “Earnie Panel”, where delegates can pitch their questions to a panel of experts from across the IRIS and Earnie teams.
