West Ham FC auto-enrols three-millionth UK worker

West Ham United Football Club auto-enrolled the UK’s three-millionth worker into a workplace pension scheme.


The Pensions Regulator’s (TPR) latest Automatic-enrolment registration report from TPR showed that more than three million employees are now saving into a pension scheme through auto-enrolment, with the three-millionth worker employed by the Premier League club.

Since auto-enrolment began in October 2012, more than 10,000 employers have auto-enrolled their employees.

West Ham United Football Club reached its staging date in January 2014.

Karen Brady, vice chairman of West Ham United, said: “West Ham United is pleased to be supporting auto-enrolment.

“It is becoming increasingly important for people to plan for their future at an earlier age.

“[Auto-enrolment] should help to make a real difference to the retirement prospects of some of the unsung stars at our club.”
